Bogota Football Bucs

31-August-2018
  On Thursday-30-August the Bogota Football Bucs opened their 2018 Season by traveling to Harrison to play the Blue Tide.  Due to changes in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association scheduling this was one of the first Varsity Football Games in August and before the school year started.
 Bogota opened the scoring with a  25 yard touchdown reception by Ashanti Caviness from Andrew Miller. Gabriel Nunez would convert the extra point for a 7-0 Bogota lead. The Bucs tried to catch Harrison  off guard by trying an On-side kick, but the ball was awarded to the Blue Tide at midfield. Harrison would use the shorter filed to take the lead with a major score and a two point conversion. and the first quarter would end with Bogota trailing 7-8. The two teams would trade a pair of touchdowns in the second quater. Bogota would get a second score from an  Andrew Miller 21 yard touchdown pass, again to Ashanti Caviness.  Bogota would take the lead again with a 5 yard dive into the end zone from George Coronel with Gabriel Nunez  added the extra point for both. Harrison  then would get back their lead going into the half with a late score and two point conversion to lead 22-21.
   After the restart the Blue Tide would have the only points in the third quarter and take a 30-21 advantage at the start of the final 12 minutes. Bogota would bring the game close with a short run for a touchdown and only trail by two. The Bucs defense held their opponent scoreless for the rest of the game. As Bogota stated to close in on the Blue Tide half of the field an Andrew Miller pass was intercepted, and no further scoring was done as Harrison held on for a 30-28 win.
Andrew Miller would finish the game with a game high 307 Yards. He would also have 2 Touchdowns and 2 Interception. Mr. Miller also lead Bogota in rushing with 41 Yards. Jason Nunez would lead all receivers with 104 Yards and Ashanti Caviness would also get a century with 102 Yards. Mr. Caviness would also catch 2 Touchdowns.  
   Bogota's next game will be their home opener on Saturday-8-September. This will be played at Feigel  Field against the Emerson Cavilers. The kick off is scheduled for 1:00p

Elm Ave Creek

31-August-2018
    On Thursday-30- August the Bogota Police Dept. closed the Northbound Lane of Elm Ave from River Rd to Larch Ave. This was done due to the undermining of the street by the creek that runs along side. The Superintendent  of the Bogota Dept. of Public Works was in the area for another matter and noticed that the brook eroded that portion of the road  between River Rd and Larch Ave. This was reported to the Borough Administrator, who then contacted the Borough Engineer  to study the area. The Engineer determined that the severity of the undermining and issue a report on what needs to be done. All three officials  agreed, to close that area as a safety precaution for vehicular traffic. 
   This section of Elm is a constant area for flooding.  In the late Winter of 2012  the Bergen County Mosquito Control Dept dredged  the stream in order to clear, and straighten the flow of water. Material was added to fill the void under Elm Ave  in order to stabilize the roadbed.  Since that time debris and erosion from the CSX  Railroad embanked has continue to fall into the stream. With the additional harsh rainfall this year the undermining of Elm Ave has worsen.  Borough Officials have not yet announce a timetable for repairs, and the Northbound lane will be closed indefinably. 
    Bergen County has a plan to rebuild the culvert under River Rd near Elm Ave to ease the flooding problem. The county's plan is to enlarge the culvert by replacing the bridge that is currently running over the creek. This work is excepted to take six to 12 months to complete, there has been no  announced date of when this work will start. Even after the culvert is replaced a representative from the County Engineer said the this reconstruction would not fully prevent more flooding in the future.
