Share post:

Alex Kaslander was the game-leading scorer with 16 points, but it wasn’t enough to get the Verona High School boys basketball team past Bloomfield Tech, which beat Verona 56-47 at home yesterday. Matt Braschi contributed 13 points to VHS’ tally. Nadir Alston and Dachon Burke were the top scorers for Bloomfield, with 15 and 13 points respectively. The Verona boys’ record stands at 9-9-0.

Things were better on the girls side of the VHS gyms, where Brielle Cummings blasted through Glen Ridge High School’s defenses to lead her team to 42-40 double-overtime victory. Cummings had a season-high 22 points in the game. There were also strong contributions from Julie Rosenberg and Sarah O’Neill, with 10 and eight points respectively. Eileen McAuley was the stand-out for Glen Ridge, with 15 points and six rebounds. The girls’ record is now 11-8-0.

The boys face Butler High School at home on Thursday afternoon, while the girls travel to West Side High School in Newark.
