Watch RFH and Ranney score state playoff wins

SSZ brings your three state playoff games from Friday night.  In our US Army Game of the Week, Jack Solano scored 12 of his 34 in OT to give RFH a 70-62 win over rival Manasquan plus the RFH girls advancing.  SSZ cameras were in Tinton Falls as Ranney reached the state quarterfinals with a 78-70 win over Rutgers Prep.

Rumson-Fair Haven 70 Manasquan 62 (OT)

Jack Solano took over overtime with 12 points in the extra four minutes as part of a sensational 34 point effort as the Bulldogs advance to the Central Jersey Group 2 finals.  The game featured tremendous three-point shooting from both teams.  Manasquan had a double digit lead in the second quarter before back to back three-pointers by Solano and Teddy Sourlis cut the lead to 38-34 at the half.  The Warriors had a seven point lead after three quarters before an RFH 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter.  Solano nailed another triple to give Rumson-Fair Haven a 49-46 lead.  The Warriors battled back with Brad McCabe delivering a hoop and foul to take a 54-50 lead with 2:26 to go in the fourth.  RFH drew even thanks to a Tyler Pierson three-pointer in the final 20 seconds to tie the game at 52.  Devin Jensen missed a turnaround jumper to win it, setting the stage for Solano’s outstanding overtime effort.  Watch the highlights from Rumson’s big win in our US Army Game of the Week:
