Absegami, which muffled the Tornadoes twice on the way to back-to-back state championships in 2005 and 2006, ended this season at 24-5.
Absegami senior forward Tara Booker, the Braves' all-time leading scorer, was remarkably composed after the loss.
"It was a game of spurts and they got the last spurt," said Booker, who suffered from occasional breathing problems. "It was a physical game and they are a class act.
"It wasn't a bad loss, because we played hard. We played the best we could. That last spurt was the difference."
Trenton Central, the Central Jersey champion, scored all the points it would need down the stretch from the free-throw line. Leading 55-51, Street finished it off from the line, sinking 5 of 6 down the stretch.
Booker scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Braves. She finished her high school career with 1,920 points. She and teammate Sara Mostafa, a 6-5 center, have signed to play at George Washington.
Mostafa and junior forward Dana Keister chipped in 10 points apiece.
Absegami led, 29-27, at intermission and Booker expanded the lead to 32-27 with a three-pointer. However, the Tornadoes went on a 7-0 spurt to take a 36-34 lead and finished the period ahead, 43-41.
Trenton Central started the final period with nine straight points for a 52-43 lead, and the Braves were never able to rebound.
The Tornadoes spread the floor on Absegami the whole game. Speedy senior guard Tracey Parsons was able to pick the pocket of Braves point guard Ty Abilla on several occasions.
"Parsons' defense was the reason we won the game," Sweet said. "She did an excellent job of stopping their point guard."
