Thursday evening the first round of the 18th annual Len Sepanak Holiday Tournament at Ridge High School. Ridge came into the game with an undefeated record, beating their opponents by an average of over 30 points, and the team's most recent 83-32 win over Somerville.
Led by senior Eric Klacik with 21 points and senior Jake Mahon and junior Kevin Doolan, each with 12 points, the Devils were poised throughout the game.
"We could have done better," said Ridge coach Kevin Heath. "This reminded me of a lot of our scrimmages: we put some good possessions together and then we let our guard down to take care of the small things and we played some poor basketball for a couple minutes. We were too hot and cold, like a roller coaster and we have to even it out a little bit and play some consistent basketball for 32 minutes like we did the other night against Somerville."
"We are working some guys in off the bench. I am very happy with my bench so far," added Feath. "We've had great, great minutes and productions from the bench, the "bigs" and the guards."
Ridge will play Sayreville Saturday at Ridge for the championship of the tournament. The time is not yet determined.
