Freeman had touchdown runs of 6, 4 and 77 yards and added a TD catch for his fourth touchdown.

Max Librizzi, quarterback of the Division I State Champion Essex Hornets, put together one final fantastic performance Corbett completed 29 of 46 pass attempts for 446 yards including three interceptions and six touchdowns.
