Without Galamb, who missed the game with a knee injury, the Mariners had no match for Freehold’s Ashley Stenftennagel and Michelle Johnston who had 18 and 15 points respectively. Kendall Kauffman led Toms River with 21 points.

“Their ability to shoot was ridiculous today,” Toms River North head Coach Vicki Guarneri said. “They just have five, six girls that can all shoot the ball. It was very impressive to watch.”

LITTLE SILVER, N.J. – Freehold High School boys basketball overcame a slow start and a fourth quarter comeback from Old Bridge High School to defeat the Knights 52-46 in their opening round game at Red Bank Regional High School. Guard Jesse Hunt led the Colonials with 24 points and hit three clutch free throws late to seal the victory. After the game, Colonials Head Coach Ben DiBiase was pleased with the victory but not with how his team played down the stretch.

“We always talk about finishing strong. That wasn’t finishing strong,” he said. “We did make some free throws down the stretch but we turned it over too much and made some inappropriate decisions.”

The Colonials got off to a slow start from the field, missing a couple threes early before hitting their stride with two baskets from Hunt and one from Chris Torre to make it 6-3 Colonials.
