SPOTSWOOD, NJ - With their first win in seven games within reach, the Spotswood High School boys varsity basketball team let the illusive 'w' in the win column slip away in the final moments of their matchup with John F. Kennedy Memorial High School, losing the contest 58-54. The Chargers took a 34-23 lead into the halftime break, but the team was out shot by the Mustangs in both the third and fourth quarters to see the margin disappear. Tamaj Coleman netted a game-high 20 points for the Mustangs including three well-timed three-pointers. Bendji Pierre scored 14 for JFK while Peter Obertan added 11.

Andrew Fuzesi was the top point scorer for the Chargers. The senior put up 17 points on the scoreboard in the loss. Abdullah Nieskens added 16 while sophomore Matt Vento netted 12points. Solomon Tyson, Vinnie Guardiola and Andrew Bishara all chipped in two. The loss dropped Spotswood's overall record on the season to 5-16. They are 1-8 in conference play. Carteret High School leads the Greater Middlesex Conference Blue Division with a 7-1 conference record.

The Chargers game against Edison High School for Thursday, February 8 has been rescheduled due to the snowstorm. It is currently scheduled to be played on Friday, February 10 at 6 p.m. at the Spotswood High School Gymnasium.
