Three Stallions Teams Win Titles

Gloucester Township Stallions' 85s, 105s and 120s all won South Jersey Elite Invitational Youth Football League championships this weekend.

There's not as much space in the Gloucester Township Stallions' trophy case as there was heading into the weekend.

Three Stallions teams brought home South Jersey Elite Invitational Youth Football League championships on Saturday.

The 85-pound team defeated the Pennsauken Panthers, 18-7, to win the organization's fourth straight SJEIYFL championship in that weight class. The team was coached by Brian Colbert.

The 105-pound team, coached by Glen Leary, won the 2012 SJEIYFL championship with a 12-7 win over Pennsauken. It is the team's second consecutive league title.

The 120-pound team won its third SJEIYFL title in seven seasons with a come-from-behind, overtime thriller. Eric Reilly's game-winning, 20-yard touchdown catch on a pass from Devon Leary gave the Stallions a 28-22 victory over Pennsauken.

The 120-pound Stallions trailed the Panthers, 22-6, in the first quarter.

Reilly was named team's offensive MVP, while Jarred Colbert took offensive MVP and Kyle Dobbins defensive MVP honors.

The 120-pound Stallions, coached by Lou Peebles, will play in the National Prep and Youth Football Association Mid-Atlantic National Championships in Richmond, VA, the weekend of Dec. 15-16.

The team is attempting to raise $5,000 to offset trip costs. Gloucester Township Patch will post updates on those fundraising efforts.

The SJEIYFL championship games were played at Washington Township High School.
