Manasquan 67  Rumson-Fair Haven 66

Dara Mabrey delivered a pair of clutch free throws with .2 seconds on the clock to give Manasquan a fourth consecutive Central Jersey Group 2 championship.  Rumson-Fair Haven has now been eliminated by the rival Warriors in four straight years in the post-season, with the last three coming in the title game.  Tori Hyduke was sensational for RFH, scoring 38 points, and sparking a fourth quarter comeback from an 11 point deficit.  Hyduke’s left handed scoop with 6.2 seconds left gave RFH a 66-65 lead.  Mabrey drove the length of the floor and drew a foul.  Facing a one-and-one, Mabrey calmly sank both free throws.  Stella Clark, who missed two previous games with an illness, returned in her final home game to score 18 points and Faith Masonius added 16 points and 12 rebounds.  Watch the highlights of a thrilling game along with post-game reaction:
