Fresh off of their victory against Camden, Woodrow Wilson would compete against another neighboring team in LEAP Academy. The Lancers were looking to get back to the winning side of a game after being defeated by St. Benedicts this past weekend. The two teams were competing in a non-league that started off with LEAP Academy holding onto a four point lead. Woodrow Wilson would find themselves quickly trailing before the half when the Lancers erupted for twenty-seven second quarter points. That proved to be the difference in this game as LEAP Academy would pick up their fifteenth win of the season when they defeat the Tigers 78-69.
LEAP Academy would be playing their fourth game this season against a South Jersey opponent and they are 2-1 so far before today’s game. The Lancers defeated the Camden Academy Charter, the Crusaders from Bishop Eustace but loss to Camden Catholic. The way they started out their game against the Tigers, LEAP Academy were on their way to increase their record against South Jersey opponents by one. After taking a 20-16 lead after one quarter, the Lancers expanded their lead to 47-34 at the break. Woodrow Wilson would respond during the third quarter to cut their deficit to five, but the Lancers would keep pace with the Tigers to pick up the nine point victory. Lance James (28 points) and Mace Williams (18 points) led LEAP Academy in scoring. Terrell Brown (24 points), Mike Williams (20 points) and James Inge (17 points) were the scoring leaders for Woodrow Wilson.
