Who thought Old Bridge would be just a win away from the Central Jersey Group 4 state final? While every other Red Division team has played their last game?
Nick Wetstein and his Old Bridge teammates, that’s who.
At just 9-17, the 12th-seeded Knights are one of the last two GMC standing in the NJSIAA state playoffs. (Middlesex is the other.) At 2:30 Tuesday, Old Bridge will play at 9th seed Marlboro (14-8) for a trip to the CJ4 title game Friday at either Hunterdon Central or Middletown South.
The Red Devils and Eagles play in the other semifinal at 4:00 today.
Wetstein says “earlier in the year it was rough.” The team had a COVID break before they could even start the season. After getting over some bumps and bruises, he says “we’re playing better than we ever have right now.”
And he says he’s looking forward to one “last ride for the boys I’ve been playing with since I was five or six years old.”
