Nelson, an Absecon resident, had a game-high 27 points in the Hermits' 71-60 win. GALLOWAY – Holy Spirit’s “reward” for beating Atlantic City in a thrilling Cape-Atlantic League semifinal Friday night was a matchup with top seed St. Augustine Prep in the CAL boys final Saturday afternoon at Stockton University.

Nelson scored 27 points, dished out 10 assists and grabbed seven rebounds, three short of a triple double. If that wasn't enough, sophomore forward Justyn Mutts scored 21 points, despite spraining his ankle at the end of the first half, and Nate Aldrich sank 6-of-8 shots for 13 points.
