Bridgemen Put Up Fight in Jamboree Loss to SJR

Falling behind early, the 11th seeded Bridgemen could not make up the deficit against St. Joseph Regional in the Bergen County Jamboree

After a four-year hiatus from the Bergen County Jamboree, the 11th seeded Fort Lee Bridgemen opened their tournament run with a 75-62 win over No. 22 Bogota but could not carry that momentum over to the Round of 16. This weekend the Bridgemen fell behind early to sixth seeded St. Joseph Regional and subsequently ousted 66-46.

The 12-7 Bridgemen were outmuscled by the 11-8 Green Knights and worn down through four quarters at Tenafly High School. The Knights took an early 17-9 first quarter lead and never relinquished control of the ball.

Member's of the 1,000 career point club Josh Fort and Nick Gentile netted 18 and 10 points respectively in the loss.

The Bridgemen will host River Dell on Tuesday, 7pm for a regular season game and then travel to Westwood on Thursday, 7pm.

Coach Ziemba is one of the most under-appreciated people in Fort Lee. The guy always gets the best of the players he has, regardless of the talent crop for that season.
