Espinal Delivers in Scarlets' Win


Conrad, Jj, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


RIDGEFIELD PARK -- Some would call him Mr. Versatility.

Ridgefield Park coach Pete Kraljic called him "an absolute warrior."

"Coach stressed to us how important getting this win was for us [Friday]," Espinal said. "And I think we absolutely sent a message."

Ridgefield Park took advantage of a break on its opening drive, turning a near costly turnover into a touchdown. …
