November 6, 2019, ALLENTOWN, NJ –A NJSIAA “Play in game” between Allentown and Robbinsville football teams to resolve a seeding issue with the playoff bracket was held tonight. Allentown had enough power points for the spot, while Robbinsville football was 9-0 in the season and a rule stated they were eligible for a playoff spot. After a NJSIAA decision a “play in game” was scheduled Wednesday night to resolve the conflict by expanding that part of the bracket.

Allentown will advance in the bracket with a game against Wall Township High School at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The game was supposed to be held Friday night and NJSIAA wanted Monday night but with conflicts the game will be on Sunday.
