The state’s longest losing streak is no more. The Wildwood Warriors snapped a 47-game losing streak this past weekend, winning their first game since Nov. 13, 2014.
There were tough times for Wildwood during this stretch, but it finally came to an end following a 30-6 victory over Lindenwold on Oct. 18.
Since that 2014 victory over Pleasantville, Wildwood had a pair of 0-10 seasons in 2015 and 2016, 0-8 campaigns in 2017 and 2018, an 0-9 season in 2019 and was 0-2 to start this year prior to Sunday’s result.
Wilwood led 12-6 through three quarters before putting up 18 points in the fourth to run away with Sunday’s game against Lindenwold.
The Warriors’ Ernie Troiano threw a pair of TD passes and ran for a 34-yard score. Wildwood also found momentum from a 52-yard TD run from Miguel Claudio.
Lindenwold’s lone points came on an 84-yard run from Josh Salter.
The Warriors next meet Maple Shade on the road on Friday, Oct. 30.
