No. 2 Gill St. Bernard’s nips No. 4 Franklin in OT to keep perfect record

Gill St. Bernard’s girls will meet Rutgers Prep for the top pod Skyland Conference Tournament title Friday night.

The Gill St. Bernard’s Knights remain undefeated by the hair of their chinny chin chin.

No. 2 Gill (7-0) needed overtime – and a last-second miss on a layup by Erica Jackson that would have sent the game to a second overtime period – to pull out a 44-42 OT road win over No. 4 Franklin (3-4) heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio, powered by Bellamy & Son Paving.

It was Elle Fajardo who missed a three with seconds remaining in regulation that would have given the Knights the win, but hit some clutch shots in the extra period. A pair of treys eliminated separate three-point deficits, and she also went 2-of-3 at the foul line in the additional four minutes.
