SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood High School boys varsity basketball team's win streak was stopped at ten yesterday as the Chargers lost 70-65 to Iselin Kennedy. The game was nip and tuck all fourth quarters with both teams putting points up on the board. Spotswood ended the first quarter with a 22-20 lead and went into the halftime break down by a point.

However, the difference was the second half where the Mustangs gained a slight upper hand, outshooting Spotswood. The small 32-28 margin was enough for Iselin Kennedy to seal the victory.

Eric Dadika had another strong game for Spotswood, netting 20 points and grabbing six rebounds. Marlon Hart scored 16 points with six rebounds. Junior JT Vento added 12 while Andrew Fuzesi contributed ten. Senior Dan Newton chipped in two and sophomore Vinnie Guardiola added five.

Kobie Wells was the top point-getter for Iselin Kennedy with 20. Peter Obertan netted 16 while teammate Tamaj Coleman scored 14 for the Mustangs.

The loss was only the second of the season for the Chargers and the first one dropped during the regular season. Their only other loss came against Bound Brook in the finals of the Crusader Classic over winter break where they lost the championship game by a point.

Spotswood's overall record moves to 14-2 and the loss to the Mustangs was the first in conference match ups. The Chargers are 6-1 against Greater Middlesex County Blue Division teams this season.

Their next challenge will come against the rival South River on Monday, February 1 in a 5:30 p.m. home game.
