Spotswood almost ended the Middlesex girls’ basketball team’s long Blue Division winning streak the other night.
If only close counted outside of horseshoes and hand grenades.
The Blue Jays got contributions from all eight players head coach Kevin Harper put in the game, and – led by junior point guard Neysa Aguilar’s 18 points – beat South River Friday night at home 62-45, in a game heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio.
Middlesex jumped out to a 6-0 lead early, and never trailed, with the Rams trying to play catch up the rest of the way. Despite senior Tiffany Fischer notching 16 points for South River – right about at her 16.2 points per game season average – the supporting cast couldn’t complement her enough, while the Rams turned the ball over too much.
Middlesex improved to 11-2 on the season, 9-0 in the Blue Division. They haven’t lost a division game since falling to Spotswood, 46-41 on January 31, 2018. South River dropped to 9-5, 8-2 in the Blue.
