High School football in Montclair got off to a good start, as the Immaculate Conception Lions beat the Newark Academy Minutemen, 31-0. After a slow first quarter, the Lions scored on a fumble recovery touchdown by sophomore running back/linebacker Amilkar Love and never looked back.

Check out the video for sports reporter Andrew Garda's initial thoughts on the game, and make sure you come back this week for a complete in-depth breakdown in the Montclair Local's inaugural Gridiron Preview. The edition will also have a preseason look at the Lions, as well as Montclair Kimberely Academy and, of course, the Montclair Mounties.


*Editor's Note: The above video mistakenly names the Lions' next opponent as Bergen Catholic, however they face Hudson Catholic instead. We apologize for the error.
