Shrewsbury senior Zach Dionis carried 24 times for 127 yards and had the winning score, taking it in from five yards out with around five minutes to go as the host Colonials (2-1) rallied back from an 11-point fourth quarter deficit. QB Mike Coggeshall caught a 26-yard TD pass from Jay Reynolds to put Shrewsbury ahead early, and then hit Reynolds for a nine-yard TD strike to start the comeback. Nick Diliberto also ran in a four-yard score for the hosts. Abdullah Webster paced the No. 8 Highlanders (2-1), running eight times for 70 yards, including a pair of TD runs of 35 and 4 yards. Isaac Yiadom also had two TD runs, of 32 and 6 yards, the second of which put Doherty ahead by multiple scores in the fourth quarter.
