MONTVILLE, NJ - Currently holding a record of 9-1, the Montville boys basketball team won back-to-back games last week against West Morris and Morristown.

While they suffered their first loss against Delbarton the week before, the team focused on continuing to play with high spirits and improve their teamwork and skill, planning to maintain this positive energy throughout the season.

“I think after the last second loss from Delbarton, we have really stepped it up,” captain Liam Cassidy said. “Our team play is much better and we rarely end a possession without everyone getting a touch on offense. Team play needs to stay this way for the rest of the season and we can’t wait to keep on proving ourselves.”

Captain Zach Warech finished off last Wednesday’s game against West Morris with 18 points, five rebounds and five assists, followed by Matt Bettio, who recorded 12 points and six rebounds. Captain Joe DelloStritto also contributed 10 points and 12 rebounds. Overall, the team held over a 10-point lead by each quarter, ultimately ending the game with a 69-48 victory.

Montville’s victory over Morristown on Friday was a “huge” win as an important conference game in their season, according to DelloStritto. With a final score of 64-43, Cassidy scored the most with 16 points while Bettio added another 11 points and seven rebounds for the team. DelloStritto, once again, earned the most rebounds with 10 rebounds as well as nine points to their win.

For Morristown, Steve Leung was the team’s leading scorer with a total of 15 points, followed by Stephen Bergeman and Brendan Pallatta with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Reflecting on Montville’s wins as well as upcoming games, Warech said, “The games were great team wins. We’re hitting a tough part of the schedule and we need to keep rolling.” The team is scheduled for five games in the next couple of weeks; two of which are conference games.

Confident in their abilities as a team, Cassidy said, “The games this week are just the beginning. We have so much left to prove to ourselves. Our schedule from this point on is extremely rigorous, but I know this is what the boys and I have been waiting for.”

Montville’s next home game will be on Feb. 1, against Roxbury.
