Roughly two weeks after a double-overtime classic for the championship of West Carteret’s Holiday Tournament – Havelock and the Patriots treated the crowd to another masterpiece Friday at Havelock High.

West Carteret led 34-27 at the half, when the Rams came storming out of the locker room with an 11-3 run to regain a lead they would not relinquish in a 66-59 victory.

The win gives Havelock (8-5, 5-0 Coastal) a two-game lead over West Carteret (7-9, 4-2) in the league standings.

White Oak is sandwiched between the Rams and Patriots in second place in the Coastal Conference at 11-6, 5-1.

“We came into this game with a better strategy for them (West Carteret) than we had in the holiday tournament in which we wanted to matchup with their shooters a lot better,” Havelock coach Bill Fryczynski said. “We had too many silly mistakes early and didn’t play our best, but it’s a credit to the guys to be able to beat a good team like West Carteret while not playing their best.”

Kyran Bowman dazzled with 24 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.
