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.

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.
