WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Two teens with masks thought they'd scare fans at a Westwood Regional High School football game -- until an administrator spotted them and alerted police, authorities said.

Officers who responded to the field Friday night grabbed the first teen, who was carrying a gorilla mask as he tried to run and the other in a wooded area nearby carrying a clown mask, Police Chief Glenn Hooper said.

"The intention was to scare people at the completion of the football game," the chief said.

Westwood Regional beat visiting Ridgefield Park 42-0.

"No threat was made since the incident stopped before any attempt was made," the cheif added.

Delinquency complaints were being drawn up against both.
