Rumson-Fair Haven 53 Manasquan 48
Brendan Barry scored 23 points, including a three pointer to beat the first half buzzer to make him RFH’s all-time leading scorer. Barry’s triple to end the 2nd gave his 16 points in the first half and surged him past Palvin Williams as the Bulldogs all-time leading scorer. Williams, a 1973 Rumson graduate, flew in from the Dominican Republic to witness the record breaking moment which stood for 43 years. RFH handed the Warriors its first loss of the season. Manasquan dominated Chris Champeau’s team on opening night 55-33, but RFH did not have Barry in the lineup due to a broken hand. Ryan Jensen led Manasquan with 19 points and 15 rebounds.
