East Meadow needs strong finish
(Page 2 of 2)
The offense struggled in a 44-37 victory over Plainview-JFK on Jan. 18, but the defense did plenty of heavy lifting in the win, limiting the Hawks to single digit point totals in the second and third quarters. In fact, East Meadow allowed just three points in the second, with junior Damian Sanders leading the effort. “He’s really quick and when he gets into an opposing guard he really disrupts him,” Dickson said. “He plays hard and has great energy.”
Sophomore Joe Forrier scored a game-high 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Zafran scored nine and Campay chipped in with eight. “Forrier’s doing what we expected,” Dickson said of the sophomore who’s averaging 10 points and eight rebounds per game. “He’s a guy that scores inside and can also hit the corner jumper, and he’s getting to the free-throw line a lot for a sophomore.”
The Jets travel to Port Washington for a 6:45 p.m. tipoff this Friday and then have a seven-day break before hosting Hicksville on Feb. 8. Campay scored 28 points in a 66-56 OT win over the Comets earlier this month.
