SADDLE BROOK – Stacey Porzl takes care of the perimeter. Stefanie Pagan controls the inside with a strong power game and a sweet shooting touch inside 12 feet.
The complementary parts combined to lift Hasbrouck Heights to a 51-33 victory over Saddle Brook in an NJIC Meadowlands Division game Thursday night as the Aviators won their eighth straight game.
A 5-foot-5 junior guard, Porzl scored a game-high 18 points and came through with seven assists and five steals. Pagan, a 5-10 senior center, poured in 13 points to go with 14 rebounds and five blocks.
“We started a little slow, but then we found our rhythm and we fed off that for the last three quarters or so,” said Porzl, who averages over 15 points and five assists per game.
“We really packed it in well defensively with our 2-3 zone, and that allowed us some extra opportunities because we forced them out of their normal patterns on offense. It led to open looks off the fast break.”
