Long Branch was able to get back into the win column with a gritty victory over Howell by a final score of 48-39. On Senior night Anyssa Fields put up a huge double double as she led the team with 23 points and 15 rebounds. Madison Grayson was a force on the boards pulling in an additional 8 and Jada Rogers added an additional 18 points of her own. Long Branch led wire to wire, but the game was close at every moment, setting up for a thrilling finish. Clutch free throws and rebounds down the stretch were able to guarantee Long Branch the victory. Long Branch has a few days off til recoup after this three game week and looks to avenge its 8-point loss from Middletown South next week on Wednesday night at home. That revenge match will be aired live from the NFHSnetwork. Log on to their website and search for Long Branch to watch all of the LB home athletics.
