MATAWAN, NJ - In their second game of the GMC tournament East Brunswick fell to Old Bridge, 68-58, despite Bears center Dante Ralph scoring 20 points. 


In the first quarter it was a back and forth affair largely because of Bears senior Gil Wyman’s hot start. Wyman finished with 9 points including three 3 pointers. Old Bridge finished the first quarter with a one point lead over EB. 


East Brunswick had a bit of a scoring drought in the second quarter as they were outscored 15-6. 5 of the 6 EB points came from Bears junior, Ryan Crocco. Crocco had a great performance off the bench, finishing with 8 points. However, at the end of the first half EB trailed Old Bridge 31-21.
