Sal Corcione led the way with 20 points in the final, played at Walloo Park in Middletown, followed by Chris Evaristto’s 18 points, Randy Kirk’s 16 and John Shultz’s 12. Coach Dick McDevitt put his best defender, James Reutter, on high-scoring Brian Triggianno of the Celtics to try to slow him down. Although Triggianno finished with 25 points for the game, he fouled out on a crucial charge call late in the game. Don Piasecki led both teams in rebounding with 12. Both teams displayed great sportsmanship throughout the contest, according to the league’s commissioner, John McDermott. The All-MFB team for the summer season consists of Randy Kirk (Rockets), Brian Triggianno (Celtics), Cody Chalmers (Lions), Mike Niesz (Lions) and Jason Miller (Colts). Earning honorable mention were Ray Locicero (Titans), Tom McDermott (eagles), Bob Miller (Rockets) and Dan Piasecki (Celtics). Anyone interested in playing in the fall MFB league at Walloo Park (September through October on Saturdays and Sundays), can contact McDermott at (732) 671-9319 or (732) 687-7746.
