It’s a championship Sunday on the diamond. The Hun Raiders made it four straight NJ Prep “A” state championships and Old Bridge topped South Brunswick to claim the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament title. We’ve got highlights and post-game reaction from both championship games!
Old Bridge 2 South Brunswick 1 – Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament Championship
Old Bridge captured its first Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament Title since 2011 with a thrilling 2-1 victory over rival South Brunswick. The Knights fell behind 1-0 in the first off a balk, but quickly regrouped on offense to go ahead 2-1 on a fielder’s choice and error in the second inning. Senior Matt Baker who technically allowed the Viking’s only earned run had a different persona after shaking off the early blunder. Baker allowed just five hits and finished with six strikeouts.
