Played at home right after the VHS girls team defeated Waldwick High School, 58-29, in their NJSIAA opener, the boys’ 49-33 win put the full depth of the Hillbilly bench on display. Alex Kaslander put up 20 of Verona’s points, but the team’s freshmen, sophomore and junior players dominated the second half. Charlie Matta, a junior, got a roar from the crowd for his five points and seven rebounds. Will Mulderry and Frank Ferrari also got on the scoreboard, and Jack Farrell took over point guard duties as Verona wrapped up the evening.Kaslander-BigHead
