Besides their opening day loss to St. Joseph's Prep, the Irish from Camden Catholic has made everyone else pay by scoring double wins. So far this season, they have won seven games in a row and they were not done. With the leadership and scoring ability of senior Nick Cangelosi, Camden Catholic has been mentioned as the top basketball programs in South Jersey. Bishop Eustace found out first hand as the Irish visited their neighboring rivals and defeated the Crusaders by a 62 to 45 margin.

This season, there are a few teams that have been making some noise throughout the league. From the Olympic Conference, the Lenape Indians has gotten off to a quick start and lead the American Division. Winslow Township also has turned things around by pushing their way to the top of the Patriot Division. As for Camden Catholic, their record speaks for itself.

Things quickly changed when the Irish outscored the Crusaders by eleven right before the half and never gave Bishop Eustace a chance to get back into this game. Nick Cangelosi recorded a game high 18 points while James Ulrich finished with 11 points for Camden Catholic. Chris Mecoli and his team high 10 points led the Crusaders.
