Friday Football Scoreboard, 10/11/13
Friday high school highlights and scores from around New Jersey.
Class A Central
Raritan 31, Monmouth 16
The Rockets (1-4, 1-2) ended a 14-game losing streak by exploding for 31 points behind a career-high three touchdown passes by junior quarterback Riley Sullivan after having scored 17 all season to down the Falcons (2-2, 1-1).
Sullivan threw two touchdowns to wideout Dylan Dewysockie, and the defense did not allow a touchdown, as both of the Falcons' scores came on kickoff returns.

Senior wideout James Wines added a touchdown catch, and senior running back Jared Collins rushed for a score in the win.
