Verona showed no mercy on Thursday night on their way to a 74-31 championship game win against Cedar Grove in the annual West Essex Holiday Tournament. Jack Farrell brought home tournament MVP honors averaging 14 points in the two games.
The Hillbillies were clicking in all facets of the game, mixing an array of points in the paint with 5 three pointers made. The boys’ ball movement and ability to find the open man was also on point.
Jack Farrell led the scoring with 18, Joe Zecchino dropped 17 and Matt Zaccone had 10. Travis Jocelyn also chipped in 9. The Verona boys’ next game will be next Thursday against Livingston.
