On Thursday, the Jonathan Dayton High School Spirit Bus was filled with students headed to the East Orange Campus High School to cheer on their fellow Bulldogs for the 5 p.m. Boys Basketball game against the Waldwick High School Warriors.

The game played in East Orange High School was the Group 1 State Semifinals face-off between the two Sectional champions from Tuesday’s games.  Dayton, representing North 2 Group 1, defeated Waldwick, representing North 1 Group 1.

The evening started off slow with Dayton leading by a point at the end of the first quarter.  In the second, Waldwick stepped up their game to close the gap and take the lead by a point at the half, 17-16.  Dayton recovered ending the third quarter on top, 28-24, but Waldwick kept Dayton on their toes as they kept inching closer in the fourth.  The game was tied with about a minute left.  Dayton managed to score four points and win the game, 36-32.

Excitement and jubilation could be seen and heard as the Bulldogs got back on the buses to return to Springfield.  The chatter was all about the Bulldogs heading to the RAC (Rutgers Athletic Center) for the Group 1 State Finals against Point Pleasant Beach this Sunday evening.  Point Pleasant Beach defeated Paulsboro, 67-48, at their 7 p.m. Group 1 State Semifinals game.
