CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE — The first time the boys basketball teams from Cape May Tech and Ocean City met this season, the Hawks gave the Raiders fits for three quarters.

Ocean City eventually pulled away for what looked like a comfortable 75-56 win, but Tech proved to be a formidable opponent deep into the second half.

That game was on Feb. 10. Shortly thereafter, both teams ended up in quarantine due to COVID-19 concerns.

Both clubs returned to the court Saturday for the first time since their respective quarantines ended and faced each other again. This time, Ocean City controlled play from the start.

The Raiders ran out to a 21-8 lead after one quarter, held a 43-19 lead at the break and cruised to a 76-40 victory.

Gannon Brady led a balanced scoring effort for Ocean City with 15 points. Tom Finnegan added 13 points and Conor Muskett sank 11 points in the win.

Ocean City, which had 12 players score, improved to 6-1 both overall and in Cape-Atlantic East Division games. The Raiders are in good position to win the division title.

Cape May Tech (1-6), which played without two starters, got a game-high 19 points from Dylan Delvecchio.
