Much can be made of Salma Aboulkhier’s senior season, in which the 5-9 forward/center is averaging a double double, 10 points and nearly 11 points per game.
But was the defense she and her teammates played Friday night that was just as valuable, in a 47-19 drubbing of GMC Blue Division opponent Spotswood heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio, powered by Bellamy & Son Paving.
Aboulkhier scored a game-high 16 points in a balanced effort, while fellow senior Chloe Cassidy scored 12 – nearly spot on her average – including a pair of three-pointers. She also had a 4-of-4 night at the foul line.
But on a night when Dunellen honored it four seniors – including Meghan Green (2 points) and Isabel Parcells (4 points) – the youh of the program shined as well; sophomore forward Alexa Castro chipped in 11 for the Destroyers, who improved to 7-6, 6-5 in the GMC Blue Division.
Spotswood (4-8, 4-7 in the Blue) was held to its lowest point total since a January 4, 2019 loss to at South River, 30-19. Junior forward Ally Clarke was the Chargers leading scorer with 8 points.
