The Monsignor Farrell boys’ basketball team turned a lot of heads when it took on favored St. Francis Prep Sunday in the first round of the CHSAA Intersectionals at Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood.
But in the end, it was Bryan Geffen and his St. Francis Prep teammates who had the last laugh.
Geffen, who is second in the CHSAA ‘AA’ division in scoring, averaging 23.4 points per game, scored a game-high 30 points, holding off a stubborn Lions squad, 74-63.
