SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ - A late technical foul, resulting in three made free throws and possession, helped push Scotch Plains-Fanwood to a 54-45 victory over the Summit High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team.

Senior captain Christina Richson had 15 points and Micaela Nardino had eight points and five rebounds to lead the Hilltoppers, who are 6-5 on the season. The Raiders, now 9-3, were paced by three players in double figures, led by Nya Downing who scored a game-high 16.

Sophomore Sylvie Goudreau (9), junior Bella Cusumano (6) and freshman Annabella Yorio (5) combined to snare 20 rebounds for the Maroon and White.

As was the case in the first match-up between the two squads, the game was tight virtually the entire way, with Summit leading after one quarter, 13-10, but trailing at the half, 26-24.

Scotch Plains 'won' the third stanza 12-8 to take a six point lead heading to the final frame, and things remained close until the referee's whistle signaled the 'T', after which Summit could not find a way back.

Next up for Summit is a trip to Bernards for the second annual Kyle Kirst Classic game, which is set to tip-off at 1 p.m.

Boys Hang with Rahway Until Final Stretch

RAHWAY, NJ - In a game they led by a point after three quarters, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team surrendered a late Rahway run to fall to the Indians, 61-44.

Junior captains Malcolm Sidebottom and Dom Yorio had 12 and 9 points, respectively, for Summit, while Denzel Cooper had a game-high 19 points for Rahway and Zion Pendleton added 17 .

Summit is now 9-2 on the season. The Indians improved to a sparkling 10-0.

Up 40-39 after 24 minutes of basketball, the Hilltoppers were down by five points with just over half a quarter remaining in the game but, from there, Rahway went on a blitz to make the final score deceiving compared to the super-majority of the contest.

Summit next faces a border battle at New Providence January 22. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
