Brick Memorial- 61 Freehold Township 56

Freehold Township and Brick Memorial were worth the price of admission on Saturday afternoon, as this back and forth Shore Conference did not disappoint. The Patriots led Brick going into half time, but the Mustangs opened up with their three point game to start the third and jumped out to a favorable lead.

Brick Memorial would then get some help on defense to get a couple quick scores as they secured the victory. Watch the highlights now:
