High School Basketball:

The Mustangs from Triton didn’t waste any time taking control of a game that they were supposed to win. They would have a very rough start of their season as they were faced with Lenape, Winslow Township, Deptford and Paulsboro during their first four games. Bruce Rice would lead the charge for Triton as they held the Warriors to just 13 first half points. The Mustangs would cruise to their first victory of the season by outscoring their opponent by a 73-42 margin.

Despite the results on the scoreboard after the first half end, the Warriors did not just step aside and watch Triton build a 39-13 lead. The Warriors were unable to stop Rice from scoring from anywhere on the court. The Mustangs were able to stay one step ahead of Tech during the second half to pick up the win. Rice finished with a game high 26 points while Santini Lancioni added 17. The Warriors were led by Karl Tenant and his 11 team high points.
