LYNDHURST — Friday’s win was one for the ages.

And one for the Lyndhurst faithful who have waited 36 long years.

The Golden Bears defeated Parsippany, 26-7, Friday in the NJSIAA North 1 Group 2 title game at Joe Cipolla Field, winning their first sectional crown since 1983.

Senior running back Piotr Partyla rushed for a game-high 135 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns and threw for another in just 30 minutes of action as Lyndhurst has won 20 of its last 22 games dating back to last season.

Keys to the Game: Lyndhurst vs. Parsippany

Greg Tartaglia, NorthJersey.com Nov. 20, 2019

Lyndhurst coach Rich Tuero and Parsippany coach Jason Hurta both inherited football programs with losing records when they took over in 2014. Friday, their teams will square off for the North 1, Group 2 title.

Tuero has had the Golden Bears (10-0) on the rise for the past few seasons and guided them to the North 2 sectional final last fall. Now, they may be having flashbacks to 1983, when they finished 11-0 and captured the North 1, Group 2 championship, to date their only sectional title of the playoff era (1974-present).

Parsippany (10-1) is enjoying its first winning campaign since 1998. In the 15 seasons leading up to this one, the Red Hawks went 23-126, and Hurta’s group began last fall by snapping a 15-game losing streak. This is Parsippany’s second sectional final – the first was in 1977, when it fell to Phillipsburg in the North 2, Group 3 title game, 26-0.
