WARREN, NJ - Dan Pilsbury lead Watchung Hills with 14 points and had seven rebounds as the Warriors defeated Phillipsburg, 69-43 on Tuesday night.
Noah Allen had 14 points, Lucas Hackett had six points and 16 rebounds, Andrew Steinhardt had nine points and Adam Goldstein and Justin LaCapra each added eight points for Watchung Hills, which outscored the Stateliners, 26-10, in the second half.
Coach Salton said,"We have had some tough losses this year (4 losses by a total of 8 points). We had two great practices leading up to tonight and it carried over into the game against a young, quality team. It helped getting an experienced varsity player back (LaCapra). I feel like the team had a calm, confident feeling once the co-captain was cleared from a season-long hamstring injury. Overall, everyone on the team played very well tonight and we hope to continue that on Thursday against a surging Immaculata squad. Hopefully, we can peak at the right time as some big games are ahead."
Jayshawn Grant had 10 points and Dave Yale had nine points for Phillipsburg.
