Taking advantage of a hectic situation, Carmine Fiore put in a layup as time expired Monday to give Egg Harbor Township a 42-40 road victory over Vineland in a Cape-Atlantic American boys' basketball thriller. Vineland trailed by eight at the start of the final quarter, but managed to outscore Egg Harbor by 15-9, capping the comeback when Steve Tobolski hit a three-pointer to tie it at 40 with less than 10 seconds remaining. Confusion after a subsequent Fighting Clan substitution gave Fiore a chance to get open for a long pass and the winning basket.
