CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – The Middle Township High School football team played a sloppy game Friday night. Numerous penalties, poor execution on a few offensive plays and missed tackles on some defensive plays combined to make for a rather ugly evening for the team.

The Panthers, however, managed to win rather comfortably, thanks in large part to the work of junior running back Yamire McNeal.

McNeal rushed 15 times for 197 yards and three touchdowns and also threw a 32-yard touchdown strike on a halfback pass to pace the Panthers to a 35-13 victory over Pleasantville.

The win was Middle’s first of the season.
