Nate Garvey pumped in a game high 26 points along with an emphatic dunk in the 1st quarter that brought the crowd out of their seats.

Tenafly went ice cold from the field not scoring their first basket until three minutes left on a three-pointer from Amit Yona. Yona delivered a game high 12 points for the Tigers.

“A hard fought victory where our kids played very well,” said St. Joseph(Mont.) Head Coach Michael Doherty” “We worked very hard on defense which gave us some opportunities that paid off.”

Brendan Kandel tallied a game high 20 points for the Maroons while Jonathan Davila netted 14 points and Quin Peene scored 13 points.

“It was more of our defense that offense today as we did not run that much,” said Ridgewood Head Coach Mike Troy. “We beat Dwight Morrow on fast breaks and in transition.”
