MADISON, N.J. - The Madison Dodgers have had a tough season after losing a powerhouse senior class last year. The Dodgers were hoping to come back and get a win for their Senior Night to salvage a 5-13 season.

Facing the Parsippany Red Hawks, Madison got their senior class a 55-33 win on Tuesday.

After the first quarter Madison was up 16-7. Devin Koep scored the most for Madison in the first half due to the foul shots that the Red Hawks kept giving out. This was a big gain for Madison and by the end of the first half Madison was still up and held the lead of 28-13.

After coming back from halftime, Madison saw somewhat of a scare by Parsippany, as the Red Hawks were able to come back and inch closer towards Madison cutting the deficit to 32-28 by the end of the third quarter.

The Madison Dodgers were still able to be triumphant, closing the game ahead 55-33.

“I’m very happy,” Madison head coach Mike Radzieski said. “We started guys we usually don’t. Like D’panker (Roy), who hardly has seen playing time. We were able to get him tonight we were able to get him in and he even got some shots off.”

Every Senior Night, which is the last home game of the season, the home team typically starts all of their seniors. So it was a very special night for a player like D’panker Roy who usually doesn’t get a lot of playing time.

Sean Haughey, who was the only returning starter from last year said the team’s hard work all year paid off with this win.

“I am very happy about the win,” Haughey said. “We all worked hard and were really able to earn this one. We knew coming in that we were going to lose four of our starters from last season this year. More than anything we knew it was going to be a rebuilding year.”

Haughey and Devin Koep were the only players on the roster who had any varsity experience entering the year.

Madison returns to the floor on Thursday when they host Whippany Park at 7 p.m.
