The latest victims to fall to the Bulldogs success were the Garnets from Haddon Heights. Despite a slow start, Haddonfield rallied in the second quarter and never looked back. Anthony Lacatena led the charge turning a first half deficit to a double-digit lead during the final two quarters. Haddonfield (9-0) won 84-67 and expand their lead over Collingswood in the Liberty Division by two games.

Haddon Heights started out quickly against their neighboring hosts posting an 18-9 lead after one quarter. That lead didn't last long as the Bulldogs erupted for 26 points in the second quarter and held a 5-point advantage going into the locker room. It was all Haddonfield the rest of the way as they completely controlled this game behind the shooting of Anthony Lacatena who had a game high 21 points, Derek Heckendorn 17 points, J.J. Stanton who finished with 11 points and Kyle Turner's 10 points. The Garnets were led by Christian Thompson's 17 points, Tim Garvin dropped in 15 points, Tyler Dempsey added 14 and Lamonte Council contributed 12 points.
