Delsea Football beats Camden in NJSIAA Group 3 State Semifinals – Courier Post | Team Cansler

MARLTON — Sal Marchese paid the Delsea Regional High School football team one of the biggest compliments a coach can give on Saturday afternoon.

“You guys are one of my favorite teams,” the director of programming for the last 30 seasons told them.

And that was before the Crusaders made history.

Quarterback Jimmy Reardon snuck into the end zone from a yard with 16 seconds left as Delsea, who was ranked No. 2 in the playoffs on the South Jersey Mean 15 ranking, recovered from a 14-point halftime deficit to take down No. 1 Camden to stun 20-14 in the Group 3 state semifinals in Cherokee, potting his ticket to the first-ever Group 3 state championship game.

“It’s great,” said junior Dom Teti. “We can play for something that nobody has played for before.”
