Manasquan held Wall to fewer than 30 points for the second time this season
Junior J.R. Hobbie's sharp shooting got the Manasquan Warriors boys basketball team off to a fast start Tuesday against rival Wall and although Hobbie and his teammates went cold at times through the game, the Squan defense did not. For the second time this season, the Warriors held Wall to fewer than 30 points while Hobbie poured in 28 points to headline a 55-28 win over the Crimson Knights Tuesday. "When we miss shots, I give the credit to the other team's defense, so I have to give our defense credit for what we did tonight," Manasquan coach Andrew Bilodeau said. "I don't like to make judgments without watching the tape, but we did hold a solid Wall team to under 30 points. I'm sure we can do some things better, but all-in-all, it was a…

Crimson Knights fall 19-7 in the first round of the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group III playoffs
The first half of the Wall football team's first-round game against seventh-seeded Steinert seemed like a bad dream - penalties, special teams miscues and failed execution on third down. When Steinert running back Keon White broke off a 60-yard touchdown run on the second play of the second half, the second-seeded Crimson Knights realized that Steinert's postseason coming-out party was all-too real. Spartans senior quarterback Adam Riese scored two first-half touchdowns while accounting for 165 total yards in the game and White and the defense did the rest in Steinert's 19-7 win over Wall, the program's first ever NJSIAA Tournament victory in its seventh appearance. "I still can't really believe this," Riese said. "Wall is such a good …

The Wall girls soccer team outlasted three-time defending champion Red Bank Catholic Wednesday to advance to their second straight Shore Conference Tournament final.
Wall High School junior goalkeeper Madi Mitchell may have looked overwhelmed Wednesday, moments before her team's round of penalty kicks following a 2-2 tie against Red Bank Catholic in the Shore Conference Tournament semifinal. She wasn't. Mitchell blocked Red Bank Catholic's first two attempts during the shootout following a stellar showing during the 100 minutes of soccer that came prior. Crimson Knight sophomore Kyra Martyn buried the game-winning kick to the right corner of the net to beat the No. 1 seed and three-time defending champions 3-1 in the round of kicks. Wall, the No. 5 seed in the tournament will take on third-seeded Freehold Township in Saturday's final at 5 p.m. "We were so nervous in the first half, all of us," Martyn …
