High School Basketball:
Paulsboro Keeps Pace in Conference

The Red Raiders from Paulsboro have been winning those games they were expected to win so far this season. It's those tough games that have given Paulsboro trouble coming close but not winning especially in a division that Sterling, Haddonfield and Collingswood are included. Against another team from the Colonial Conference, Paulsboro quickly controlled their game against the Green Wave from Audubon. Four players finished in double figures and Paulsboro rolled on to the 73-45 victory.

The long range shooting of DeAndre Fowlkes and Yahmeen Johnson took control of the perimeter that allowed the middle to be open for the baskets inside the paint. Audubon found themselves down, but not out of this game after one quarter. Trialing by a 19-9 score at the start of the second, Paulsboro did not let their opponent gain any momentum as their defense held Audubon to eight points. Paulsboro continued their dominance during the second half to pick up the easy win. Johnson finished the game with 22 game high points, Fowlkes added 20, Brandon Johnson finished with 15 points and Stefan Tucker ended the game with 10 points. For Audubon, Angel Arroyo had 15 points and Mike Eksterowicz dropped in 12 points.
