  • NOTES: The Yellow Jackets own the Division I tournament with four straight championships and a seventh straight finals appearance this year -- but they barely made it to the finals this year with a 6-0 semifinal win over William Penn on Friday, Nov. 23. In winning their 32nd straight game, the Yellow Jackets needed an early fumble recovery to set up a 12-yard TD pass from quarterback Eric Spiese to John Parkinson for the winning points. The defense then did its job by keeping William Penn out of the end zone. The defense intercepted three passes and held the Colonials to 75 first half yards. Newark's high-powered offense managed only 144 total yards ... The William Penn result was in stark contrast to a 10-0 regular season in which the 'Jackets outscored their opponents 40.2 to 7.2 points per game and have scored more than 50 points three times including a 63-15 victory over Delcastle. They also scored 47 points against McKean and 39 against St. Mark's ... Newark has won 32 straight games ... Newark is led offensively by quarterback Eric Spiese and running backs Austin and Drew Kisner ... Spiese has been offered a scholarship at the University of Delaware. He has completed 64 of 129 passes for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns but connected on just 5 of 16 passes for 94 yards in the semifinals... Austin Kisner has rushed for 1,746 yards and 18 TDs. He also averages 25.4 yards per punt return. In the semifinals, he rushed for 77 yards on 16 carries. In the regular season win over William Penn, Kisner ran for 125 yards and 2 touchdowns including a 76-yarder and returned an interception 38 yards for another TD ... Kisner's younger brother Drew is also a major contributor. He ran for 1,120 yards and 13 TDs and averaged 24.8 yards per kickoff return. He posted 149 yards rushing in a win over McKean and returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown against Glasgow... John Parkinson has caught 24 passes including 6 for scores. Parkinson also leads the defense with 84 tackles including 53 solo ... Other defensive leaders include Kevin Wiggins with 9 sacks and Pete Callahan with 4 interceptions ... Brandon Snow is also a threat at running back with 6 touchdowns ... In addition to their four straight state titles, the Yellow Jackets have been in six straight championship games. They lost to William Penn in 1995 and 1996.
