South Brunswick took advantage of Ashley's miscues Friday night and leveled its football record with a 47-21 victory.
The Cougars won on homecoming night and opened the Mideastern Conference slate on high note.
"The kids, they just keep working," South Brunswick coach Daniel Finn said. "We've got the talent. We've got the coaching. We've got the support.
"Just keep working and good things are going to happen. Luckily we're putting some drives together and scoring a couple of touchdowns and the defense is stepping up when we need to."
The Screaming Eagles (0-5, 0-1) fumbled three times in the opening half, and all of them ended with South Brunswick in the end zone.
The first turnover led to a 14-play Cougars drive that produced a 6-0 lead. Malik Douglas capped the series with a 10-yard touchdown reception from Cole Blackburn late in the first period.
After Ashley coughed up the football again on its next drive, it took the Cougars (3-3, 1-0) five plays to go 31 yards for a 12-0 lead. This time it was Blackburn to Tristan Parkes for a 21-yard score early in the second frame.
