TOMS RIVER -St. John Vianney has won 16 NJSIAA Non-Public A girls basketball championships since it first became a state power in the early 1990s, but none could match Saturday’s stirring comeback.Trailing defending champion Immaculate Heart Academy by 16 points late in the first half, the Lady Lancers staged a stunning second-half comeback to grab a 50-46 victory for its first state title in three years.The win also avenged a two-point setback to IHA in last year’s Non-Public A finals, but Saturday was a different story.“We looked at films of last year’s game the other day,” said SJV’s Tina Lebron, who had the biggest basket of the game, a three-pointer that gave the Lady Lancers their first lead of the game with 2:17 left in the contest. “We picked it apart because we knew that we played badly in that game.”“This was my ninth state title either as a coach or player,” said SJV coach Dawn Karpell, a standout for the Lady Lancers in the 1990s. “This title was special because it was the first state championship for this group of kids.”After Lebron’s basket put SJV ahead, the Lady Lancers never lost the advantage as Kelly Campbell sealed the win with five of six free throws.“It felt good when the ball left my hand,” said Lebron. “When you are that open, you have to do it for your team.“I was a so happy when I made it,” she said, “We’re like a family. We’re so close that it was awesome.”Campbell was named Most Valuable player with 12 points, five steals and seven rebounds, along with a standout performance on defense.“We had some doubt at halftime,” Campbell admitted, “but we knew that we would come back in the second half. We did it with defense. I shoot about 100 free throws in practice each day.”It was all IHA in the first half when it jumped out to a 33-17 lead behind Caitlin Roche, who dropped in four three pointers.SJV came out in the second half looking like a different team, however, as it tightened its defense and shot much better.“We shot only 22 percent in the first half while they shot over 50 percent, ” said Lebron. “We did much better in the second half.”SJV started its comeback quickly in the third quarter, closing the gap to 33-26 on a pair of baskets by Campbell and a three-pointer from Kellie Crouch.“We wanted to get the lead down to eight points by the end of the quarter and play better defense,” said Karpell.SJV actually narrowed it to 35-31, on two free throws by Vanessa Pinho, but IHA appeared to recover and had what looked like a safe 43-35 lead with 4:17 remaining.It was here that SJV finally put everything together as it scored 13 straight points, including Lebron’s key three-pointer and five free throws by Campbell.IHA’s Jordan Wilmoth gave her team some hope with a three-pointer with 32 seconds left, but foul shots by Campbell and Zoe Pero clinched it.“We just decided to play better in the second half,” said Karpell.“We also put Campbell on Roche and she did a great job by holding her scoreless.“Once we got the lead, we caught momentum and it was another level for us,” she said. “The kids began to believe.”–By Jim Hintelmann
By Chris Rotolo |RUMSON – Murphy’s Tavern on Ward Lane, which came to life as a secluded gin-mill speakeasy, is preparing to mark 100 years since Prohibition.The saloon, located at the end of a driveway in a residential neighborhood, is a link to a nefarious moment in the Two River area’s past when smugglers and rumrunners navigated the twists and turns of the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers using the cover of darkness to drop shipments of “wet goods” during the dry times of Prohibition-era America.“Where this place is situated and the surrounding geography of the area is a huge part of why it was able to endure,” said Robb McMahon, who owns the bar with friend and business partner Heather Vena Racioppi.They believe the underground speakeasy began illegally serving booze to law-breaking locals shortly after the 18th Amendment was ratified by a Utah in 1919. The business partners are planning a celebration to recognize the anniversary in the New Year.The story of the once secret, subterranean saloon makes for good conversation and, during a Nov. 27 interview with The Two River Times, McMahon is enjoying the storytelling from behind an oak bar.McMahon says if the surrounding residences weren’t blocking his shot, he’s fairly certain he could chuck a rock from the entrance of Murphy’s to the nearby riverfront. Or at least he could have back in his Little League days.The entrance to what is now the borough’s public boat launch sits about 200 feet from the bar’s location, which is designated with a sign on the home’s cream colored siding reading “Murphy’s – Since Prohibition.”In the basement of a Ward Lane residence near the Navesink River is Murphy’s Tavern, a former speakeasy. Photo by Chris RotoloThe boat launch overlooks a naturally formed cove, with a marsh-covered island situated between the Rumson riverfront and a patch of Hartshorne Woods that includes a portion of Mount Mitchill’s scenic overlook.“The coverage from the woods was key. The water access was key. Just look at what we have today in the Seastreak (Ferry). You’re in and out of New York City much quicker over the water than by rail. And when you’re doing something illegal, it’s a lot safer traveling by water,” McMahon added.In November 1918, the U.S. Congress passed a temporary Wartime Prohibition Act, banning the sale of beverages with an alcohol content greater than 1.28 percent. It was an attempt to preserve grain supplies for troops battling in World War I.In December 1918 the U.S. Senate proposed the 18th Amendment, effectively establishing the prohibition of intoxicating liquors, followed by Congress passing the Volstead Act in October 1919, which defined those liquors and the penalties against those who produced and sold them.By the time the country officially went dry Jan. 17, 1920, Murphy’s was well established near the banks of the Navesink.The Ward Lane establishment was also a mere seven-minute stroll from the police station, then located on Center Street.“Let’s just say, back then, the owners were only worried about the federal government knocking on their door and this was small potatoes compared to the likes Al Capone, Tommy Lucchese and Dutch Schultz. They weren’t really worried about the Murphy’s,” McMahon said. “But this wasn’t the only place to have an operation.”In 1923 one man was shot and killed, six others were hospitalized and seven more were jailed following a gun fight on the streets of Atlantic Highlands between a band of bootleggers and a gang of highjacking rum pirates.In 1924 George F. Grause was arrested in a raid with 20 other men for selling illegal spirits in the hidden backroom of a Red Bank haunt. Later that year the U.S. Coast Guard launched a sting operation off the coast of Monmouth Beach and seized a million dollars’ worth of product from a British vessel named the Frederick B.Holmdel resident James Maher stored a whiskey still in his attic, accessed by a staircase behind a removable panel in the closet of his daughter’s bedroom at their Hop Brook Farm home. In 1923 he designed a process to transform cider from his family’s lush orchards into apple jack and laid out a drive-through pathway for locals to purchase a bottle at his backdoor and motor off without detection. The still was discovered in 1933, the year Prohibition was repealed.Vena-Racioppi said structurally and cosmetically the tavern has changed, but the partners have never wanted to create a caricature of the era. “The last cosmetic redo we did, we made sure not to make a Prohibition them park out of it like so many others in the area have. We didn’t have to do that,” she added.Vena-Racioppi said originally the bar top ran along a wall where a 1950s shuffle board table now rests. The room itself was completely open back in the 1920s, with just a couple of booths located on the opposite wall.The new bar top is an L-shape, opening much of the room up to patrons. Photos from the 1940s hang around the room, as does a jackelope head, a couple of dart boards and modern jukebox.“This is a room that’s been around for about a century now. There wasn’t much we had to do, because it’s already from the Prohibition era. It’s already authentic. We just had to acknowledge the history and make it a little more accommodating in the process. People have responded really well,” Vena-Racioppi added.The tavern serves handcrafted cocktails, wine by the glass and bottle, and both bottled and draft beer. They also have a small snack menu with pizza, bar items like pigs in a blanket, and specialty French fries, including the quintessentially New Jersey Pork Roll Fries, crispy strips of Taylor Ham served with ketchup and cheese sauce.Murphy’s Tavern is open seven days a week from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and features Friday happy hours from 6 to 8 p.m. with live music. They will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party Dec. 31 from 4 to 8 p.m. to coincide with the New Year in Dublin.For more information on the New Year’s Eve party and other special events visit murphystavernrumson.com. The bar is located at 17 Ward Lane.This article was first published in the Nov. 29 – Dec. 5, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
“He is the kind of player I like to work with and mold . . . can’t teach a kid the will to compete and toughness.”The 19-year-old Dawson, who played all his minor hockey in Nelson, got his start playing three games as an affiliate with Leafs.The next season started with Beaver Valley Nitehawks before finishing the season in Grand Forks.Last season with Grand Forks and Revelstoke Grizzlies Dawson played in 48 games, finishing with seven goals and 13 assists.Ontario currently sits fifth in the Western Division of the WSHL, 20 points behind division leading Fresno Monsters.Shaw said the Western States Hockey League is similar to the KIJHL as a young, developmental league.“Our goal is the same, having moved over 15 players to the USHL, NAHL and NCAA Div. 3 programs, as well as Tier 2 programs up North in the last three years,” he said.Shaw said the biggest difference between the WSHL and the KIJHL is the import rule, allowing up to 12 players from outside the USA.“A lot of European players that give the games and each team a diverse look,” he said. After spending three seasons in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, mostly with the Grand Forks Border Bruins, Nelson product Coleton Dawson has given up the cold winters of BC for warmer Californian climate after signing with the Ontario Avalanche of the Western States Hockey League. “I acquired Coleton about three weeks ago,” said Avs head coach Chris Shaw, who also held a similar position with the Nelson Leafs of the KIJHL.“He was a player that I really like when he was 15 years old when he played for us in Nelson as an affiliate player.”The 6’2”, 200-pound Dawson has two assists in nine games for the fifth-place Ontario Avalanche Junior A hockey team.“Coleton has a very solid skill set which I feel gets over looked (as) everyone seems to look at his penalty minutes,” Shaw explained.

INDIANAPOLIS – APRIL 03: Head coach Mike Krzyzewski of the Duke Blue Devils gestures as he coaches in the first half against the West Virginia Mountaineers during the National Semifinal game of the 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 3, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)No. 4 Duke defeated Georgia Tech 72-66 at home last night. The victory gave Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski his 423rd career ACC victory, surpassing Dean Smith for the most all-time. After the game, Krzyzewski addressed the crowd as part of a ceremony honoring his 1,000th-career win, which came against St. John’s on Jan. 25. As part of the tribute, the Duke players all wore “Coach 1K” shirts, with the number 1 embedded as part of the letter K. Krzyzewski touched on both milestones during his time on the mic, and thanked the Cameron crowd for its support. There might not be any more coach in American more synonymous with his program than Krzyzewski is with Duke basketball. Pretty cool moment.
