The Secaucus High School football team was unable to manage its first winning streak of the season with a 42-7 loss at New Milford on Friday.
The Patriots (2-3) were riding high after a lopsided home win against Harrison and opened the game with an eight-yard touchdown run by Derek Fernandez early in the first quarter. But Secaucus was held scoreless for the remainder of the game as New Milford took control.
Senior Alex Molina scored twice in the first quarter en route to 221 rushing yards for New Milford.
The Patriots will try and bounce back against Hawthorne at Secaucus High School on Friday.
