GARFIELD, N.J.– The Garfield Boilermakers won three of the four Mayor's Trophy football games against the Elmwood Park Bombers a year after sweeping their rival.

Garfield's mighty mites won 24-6; the peewees picked up a 19-6 victory; and the seniors scored a 14-0 triumph.

Elmwood Park's junior squad shutout its opponent, 26-0.

"It was an excellent turnout of fans and the kids did extremely well," said Bombers President Steve Zaccone. "I want to thank the coaches who work so hard with the kids, from both towns, and also the Bomber trustees who ran the concession stand. This is a 10-hour day that everyone volunteers his or her time for."

During the first game, Justin Leider of Elmwood Park – who suffers from a rare disease scored his team's first touchdown of the game.

Elected officials from both towns -- Elmwood Park Councilmen Joe Dombrowski and Steve Martino; and Garfield's Mayor Tanya Raymond, Deputy Mayor Glenn Matti and Councilman Joe Delaney -- presented trophies after the game.
