Tenafly HS hosts second round of Bergen County Jamboree



(5) Bergen Catholic 76, (21) North Arlington 25

Bergen Catholic junior Gabe Stefani scored five of his game-high 14 points in the first quarter and freshman Doug Edert knocked down four three-pointers in the fourth quarter as the Crusaders crushed North Arlington 76-25. Bergen Catholic tallied 14 treys in the contest. Up 14-6 in the second quarter, Bergen Catholic went on a 10-0 to break the game wide open at 27-6.

“We’re a good out-shooting team and moved the ball well,” said Bergen Catholic Head Coach Billy Armstrong. “We were locked in defensively and holding them to seven points in the first half. I tell the kids defense wins championship and offense sells tickets. Gabriel is a junior and improving plus we are trying to get him to be more of a playmaker, in the second and third quarters he made some really good drives.”

(4) St. Joseph 77, (13) Pascack Valley 64

St. Joseph Green Knights senior Nate Garvey poured in 15 of his game-high 24 points in the first half while junior Chauncey Hawkins netted 18 points and Joe Radi contributed 14 as the Green Knights pulled away late in the fourth quarter for a 77-64 win over Pascack Valley.

“We’re very pleased to be moving and knew we were going to have to knock down some shots,” said St. Joseph Head Coach Michael Doherty. “We hit our free throws and couple of buckets that allowed us to keep the lead. Nate Garvey is a good shooter as well as Joe Radi. Chauncey had a critical steal to put us up by 9 and a great steal by jamming the passing lane and you just can’t teach that.”

(7) Paramus Catholic 56, (10) Hackensack 46

Paramus Catholic went on a 13-0 run in the third quarter and held Hackensack without a point for almost five minutes as the Paladins held off a late charge by the Comets to win 56-46. Senior Landon Gaines scored eight of his game-high 14 points in the fourth quarter putting Paramus Catholic up by double digits.

“When Landon plays well we can practically beat any team in the conference,” said Paramus Catholic Head Coach Mark Scott. “A big time player who is a difference maker on our team plus very underrated and plays above the rim. Our match-up zone bothered them and in the third quarter made a conscious effort to dig in and take the game.”

(2) Don Bosco Prep 55, (15) Cliffside Park 37

Don Bosco Prep senior Omar Mostafa netted seven of his game-high 20 points in the third quarter and fueled a 9-2 run as the Ironmen broke away for a 55-37 win over Cliffside Park. Mostafa buried four three-pointers in the contest.

“We came out and made shots early plus Omar made a couple of three’s in the first quarter to get us going,” said Don Bosco Prep Head Coach Kevin Diverio. “It was good we had the lead from beginning to end. Omar did a great job for us in that third quarter and get us going again. Once we stretched it out to 14 to 16 points I thought we did a pretty good job of being calm and patiently offensively.”
