Barnegat took a crucial step toward its second straight Class B South title and clinched a spot in the state playoffs for the fifth straight year thanks to a strong game by senior quarterback Cinjun Erskine, who ran for a pair of touchdowns and also caught his first career touchdown to power a 24-22 win over visiting Lakewood on Friday night.
