Paz Gismondi scored on a 38-yard pass from Nick Diaco for what proved to be the winning points as the West Deptford High School football team defeated Paulsboro 21-18 Saturday.
The game was the final regular-season contest of the season and the last game in the Colonial Conference. The 12-team league will be part of the West Jersey Football League next fall.

Diaco, a senior quarterback/defensive end, also scored on a 3-yard run for West Deptford. He had four sacks on defense. Elijah Pratt scored the team’s first TD on a 6-yard run in the second quarter.
Kyle Jones, starting at quarterback for the injured Carlton Aiken, threw two touchdown passes to John Pellegrini for Paulsboro. Jones also scored on a 60-yard fumble return.
Pellegrini’s TD catches covered 27 yards in the first quarter and four yards in the third.
Paulsboro finished 8-3.
