SSZ has three great games of action including a US Army Game of the Week doubleheader. We’ve got Marlboro’s historic win over CBA on the boys side while the SJV girls made a statement in their victory at home over RFH. We also have the Keyport Red Raiders and Henry Hudson Admirals boys go down to the wire!
Marlboro 48 CBA 33
The trio of Daniel Weiss, PJ Ringel and Dylan Kaufman led a balanced scoring attack for the Mustangs. Weiss had 13 and Ringel and Kaufman each chipped in with a dozen points. Ringel had six assists and six steals in his third game back from injury. CBA trailed 24-13 at the half, but put together a 6-0 run to start the third quarter to get within five points. Liam Kennedy led the Colts with 8 points. It’s believed to be the Mustangs first ever win in boys basketball over the Colts. Watch the highlights of our US Army Boys Basketball Game of the Week:

Keyport 54 Henry Hudson 52
The Admirals 11-0 run gave them a 50-49 lead with 1:12 to go, but Brenden O’Brien sank three free throws in crunch time to give the Red Raiders a hard fought win. Chris Hogrefe had 17 and O’Brien had 16 for the 3-7 Red Raiders. Matt Going had 20 points for Henry Hudson and did almost all of the damage in the great comeback. Colin Fernandez hauled down a key rebound off a miss and made two more free throws to seal the victory. Watch the highlights of a game that went right down to the wire:
