Crusaders too Powerful on Seniors Home Finale

March 2 – Oradell, NJ – The top-seeded Crusaders took step two in convincing fashion with a 69-52 victory over Don Bosco Prep.  It was BC’s third victory in sixteen days over their rival giving them the opportunity to take on St. Joseph Regional (#2 seed) who defeated Union Catholic on the other half of the Non-Public “A” North Section bracket.  The Sectional Final will take place on Wednesday, March 6th at Franklin High School, 500 Elizabeth Ave, Somerset, NJ 08873 at 6:00 PM.

     BC’s poised point guard, Raejon Figures played the role of leading scorer. It is an interesting role for him as he normally distributes and quarterbacks the offense, but he used his deadly jumper and a number of aggressive drives to the basket to create early offense in possessions before the Ironmen were ready to support against him.
     Great senior leadership from Zach Freemantle 12 points and 8 rebounds and Doug Edert 11 points, 3 rebounds and 3 steals, was out done by Jayson Earle’s 15 points, 9 rebounds an d3 assists. Matt Zona grabbed 5 rebounds and pitched in 7 points, providing outstanding toughness and physical play that the Ironmen had no answer for. Will Richardson added 6 points and Sean Regis electrified the crowd with a bucket. Onto the sectional final!
