Dodgers' unbeaten streak continues as team shuts out Mountain Lakes.
The Madison High football team won its third straight state title with a 13-0 victory over Mountain Lakes in the North Jersey Section 2, Group 2 championship Saturday morning at Kean University.

Borough resident led Madison to 9 state championships.
A win by Madison over Summit in the North 2 Group II state football championship tonight at Kean University would give head coach Chris Kubik his second state crown in as many years, stamping him as one of the brilliant young scholastic coaches in New Jersey and earning an enduring place in the borough’s sports pantheon. Not many coaches win even one title, much less two in a row. But that would still leave Kubik seven championships shy of the total won by Ted Monica, one of the great coaches in the history of New Jersey football, who led Madison to an improbable nine titles in 27 years – or one championship every three years – while on the Dodger sidelines. But Kubik’s already passed muster with Monica. “I think Kubik is a hell of a coach…

Police to escort team bus through Madison on Friday.
Madison fans can be excused a bit of superstition, what with their football team riding a 24-game unbeaten streak and a second straight state title game coming up Friday. But having the stars aligned sure can't hurt. Just as they did in 2010, Dodger fans will get a chance to cheer their team as it gets a police escort through downtown on the way to take on Summit Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Kean University. The Union school's Alumni Stadium was the site of Madison's 28-21 victory over Caldwell for the North 2 Group II championship a year ago. The motorcade will bring the football team from the High School down Park Avenue and then Main Street on their way to Kean. The team is expected to drive through downtown at approximately 4:30 p.m., …
