Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Maroons narrowly defeated in Friday night’s North Jersey, Section 2, Group 5 semifinal round between Ridgewood and West Orange . The 6th seeded West Orange Mountaineers pulled off an upset over the 2nd seeded Ridgewood Maroons in a nail biter with the game decided in overtime by the visiting Mountaineers defeating the Maroons 34-31.

All tied at the half Ridgewood jumped to the lead in the 3rd quarter . West Orange tied it in the 4th and went on to win in overtime.

In overtime  Ridgewood got possession of the ball first, and in what some consider the most controversial call of the game opted to kick a field goal rather than go for it on a fourth down. West Orange responded  needing only three plays as Stewart found Karriem scoring for a 10-yard touchdown to win the game for West Orange 34-31.
