WARREN, NJ - The Warriors lost a close one on Tuesday night. After dedicating the game to Scott Anderson and taking an early lead, the Watchung Hills boys basketball team fell to Montgomery, 34-33.
 
Watchung Hills took command in the first quarter but the Cougars came back to take a 17-16 lead into the half. The Warriors outscored Montgomery in the third but missed a few buckets to fall one point short. Lucas Hackett scored nine points, Adam Goldstein hit eight and Dan Pilsbury seven in the defensive battle.
 
 
 
Coach Salton said, "We put our heart and soul into the game, but unfortunately could not finish the game off. This loss definitely hurts, but we will regroup and get ready for North Hunterdon  Thursday."
 

Warrior captains Justin LaCapra and Adam Goldstein presented Anderson's wife Sue with flowers. As seniors, LaCapra and Goldstein are the last remaining  Warren travel team players that Anderson coached.
 
As Anderson was known to say, "If you believe, you will achieve."
 
Eleven years ago Anderson was approached to organize and lead the newly formed Warren Youth Basketball Association (WYBA) and under his leadership, the association flourished.  Five years ago, Scott passed away, unexpectedly.  To recognize Anderson's contributions to the youth of Warren Township, the WYBA board formed a tournament to fund scholarships for graduating high school seniors that participated in WYBA as players and/or volunteers.
