First Round Shockers Highlight Beginning of WOBM Christmas Classic

The WOBM Christmas Classic continues on Wednesday after some first round shockers.

WOBM Christmas Classic Boys Championship
Townsquare Media NJ

In Saturday’s opening round Girls games 7 of the 8 higher seeds advanced into the quarterfinals and 10th seeded Jackson Liberty’s win over #7 Toms River North was certainly not a major surprise. However when the Boys took the court Sunday at the Pine Belt Arena at Toms River North it was a very different story.



Within a 30-minute stretch both third seeded Freehold Township and number four Manchester were knocked out of championship contention.

In their first-ever WOBM Christmas Classic appearance, the Patriots were shocked by 14th seed Central 58-49 behind sophomore Evan Lang’s 13 points. Freehold Township played without leading scorer John Horrigan who was sidelined with a knee injury. The Golden Eagles will next face sixth seed St. Rose who fought their way past Lacey 42-40.

Toms River East (number 13) pulled off the day’s other stunner when they knocked off Manchester 48-42 as Dave Lewis scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. The Raiders move into the quarterfinals where they will meet defending champion Jackson Memorial, who slipped by Red Bank Catholic 45-41 as Pete Hetzel scored 16 points.

Top-seeded Toms River North coasted past Brick 49-22 with Kyle Carrington scoring 13 points. The Mariners will face Brick Memorial in Thursday’s quarterfinals after the Mustangs edged Point Boro 63-61 in overtime behind a 17-point effort from Mike Golden.

Toms River South made it a sweep for the Toms River schools with a 57-35 win over Wall as sophomore Tymere Berry spun and slashed his way to a 24-point effort. The Indians quarterfinal round opponent will be CBA, who made their WOBM Classic debut a winning one by getting past a game Barnegat squad 56-43. Trevon Gross led the Colts with 15 points.
