Phil DeSantis ran for 156 yards and two touchdowns and completed 4 of 5 passes for 55 yards and a touchdown to lead the Marlboro High School football team over Highland, 62-0, on Friday.

Tanner Hashberger ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns, and had two catches for 37 yards and a score for the Iron Dukes (7-0). Rino Tamburri rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown, and Sam Mongelli ran for 72 yards and a score.

“We’re getting off the ball faster, hitting our cuts better, playing cleaner and making adjustments quicker,” Marlboro coach Rich Ward said. “Everything you want to see a team improve on as it heads toward the playoffs, we’ve been seeing the last three weeks. We just have to keep it going.”

John Perugino had two interceptions and ran for a touchdown, Jonathan Sakadelis made 15 tackles and Frank Zebrowski had 14 tackles for Marlboro.

Marlboro, the four-time defending Section 9 Class B champions, will have the No. 1 seed entering the playoffs. The Iron Dukes will have a bye next week before facing an opponent to be determined on Oct. 31.

“We put ourselves in good position to make a run at the sectional title,” Ward said. “It won’t be a cakewalk because there’s tough competition out there, but I think we’ve gotten progressively better.”
