SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The Edison Eagles Justin Turner came off the bench to score 15 points, and the Eagles went on a 24-7 second quarter run to go on to handedly defeat the SPHS Tigers 68-45.  SPHS and Edison traded shots throughout the first quarter with five lead changes.  South Plainfield retook a two point lead, 15-13 on a Jason Lee three point buzzer beater to end the quarter. 

Edison, midway through the second quarter, would seize control of the game, and South Plainfield would not mount much of a threat in front of the home senior night crowd.

“We played well tonight” said Edison Coach Charlie Mohr.  “We knew against South Plainfield we were going to have to stop their penetration, and keep them off the glass, and we were able to do that.”

Edison certainly was able to execute the coach’s plans.  Edison’s Ishmael Treadwell dominated the boards in the second half scoring eight of his ten points in the final two quarters.  The Eagles were nearly flawless from the foul line, and led the Tigers by 20 points for most of the 2nd half.

In addition to Turner’s 15 points, Edison received contributions of 14 points from Justin Payne and 10 points from John Zanfordino.

South Plainfield’s offense was led by junior Jason Lee’s 16 points and Lamont Williams’ 14 points.
