MORRISTOWN, NJ – Morris County girls basketball fans may well see Morristown and Montville play twice more this season.
They’ll meet again on February 15 up in Montville, and they may well meet a third time at CCM in the semifinals or even finals of the Morris County Tournament.
Round one went to the Colonials on Friday night, and they are now in the driver’s seat in the NJAC-United race. An 11-2 fourth quarter burst propelled Morristown to pull away and take a 38-27 victory over the Mustangs in an anticipated intra-county showdown.
Balanced scoring was the name of the game for Morristown, who went on a 10-0 run in the second quarter to take a 22-19 lead at the break.
Senior center Kate Kolb had a huge game for Morristown, finishing with 12 points and 8 rebounds to pace the winners. Elizabeth Strambi put up double-figures again for Morristown with 10, while junior guard Nicole Ferrara finished with 11 points.
The victory moved the winners to 7-1 on the season, and more importantly stakes them at 2-0 in United action. While Morristown still has the aforementioned trip to Montville and a potentially tricky home game with Chatham, this result greatly increased their chances of winning at least a share of the league title.
