Eastside Tops Kennedy, 71-60

The Ghosts


PATERSON, NJ - The Ghosts of Eastside High knocked off the Kennedy Knights, 71-60, on February 22, winning for the second time in this year's version of the intracity rivalry. But the most important contest between Paterson two high school boys basketball teams looms on Saturday in the Passaic County Tournament Championship game.
Even though both teams played hard, it was obvious there was less urgency, less intensity than what will be expected this weekend in the finals.
Eastside dominated the game from the start, taking a 39-19 lead at half-time. Sophomore Ky're Jackson led the Ghost with 20 points and 8 rebounds  while Junior DeAndre Noble chipped in with 13 points and 9 boards. Senior Najee Seabrooks, who tallied 11 points and seven boards, had the play of the game. He threw the ball off the glass and slammed it home for the exclamation point,

Kennedy did make several runs in the second half behind Sammy Singletary, who had a game high 25 points. Jhamir White finished up with 13 for the Knights.
Now that Eastside has beaten Kennedy twice the big question is: Can the Knights find a way to beat the Mighty Ghosts on Saturday?
Meanwhile, in the girls contest, Kennedy prevailed over Eastside, 78-39. Kylla Champane had 29 for the Lady Knights.
