East Brunswick vs. Monroe, Two Days in Row in Girls' Softball Tournaments


EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The Lady Bears of East Brunswick High School will get their fill of Monroe High School in the next 48 hours, as the two teams get to square off twice in tournament action.

First up, it will be the finals of the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament, as the Lady Bears rallied from 4-1 down early, to thump Metuchen 13-4 in one of the two semifinal games. The Lady Bears gave up 4 early runs in innings one and two, only to roar back with six runs in the bottom of the second inning, and then score five more in the sixth, to put the game out of reach.  It was a total team effort as five different Lady Bears players had two rbi's each in the romp.

The top seeded 22-2 Lady Bears will face second seeded and undefeated Monroe, who squeaked by Piscataway 5-4 in the other semifinal matchup.

Monroe has pounded Manalapan and West Windsor South in their two victories, while East Brunswick has defeated Freehold 4-0 and Old Bridge 6-0 in their two games in the tournament. The winner Tuesday will face the winner of the other semifinal matchup between top-seeded Hillsborough and cinderella 13 seed Brick Memorial.
