Fall Season 2014 ..Week 2 Results..Every Game Down to the Buzzer!
Every Game, every opportunity. The games are all the same. The game comes down to the last few possessions before a winner emerges. Tonight was no exception as 4 of the six games went down to a final touch..a final possesion. Chip's Boys look like the team to beat as they bested a very strong Pick One team by one. Steve's Team and Certified are still undefeated, but have not looked great in thier wins. Time will tell. There is plenty of basketball as 8 more regular season weeks, then playoffs! It will be a great Fall! See everyone on Monday for Week 3!
The Following Teams make up our Division:
Purple Mafia (soon to change name)
Steve's Team (soon to be named)
Chip's Team (soon to be named)
Summer 2014 Champions..Purple Mafia and Hot Shots!
The MCAL has been around for a long time now. Our Championship Games are usually well played and tight. Tonights 2014 Summer Sesaon Championships were no different a we now have two new Champions! The early game, the "B" Division, had the one seed, Purple Mafia, play host to the two seed, Pick One. The scoring was very light as tight defense and player tightness, cause turnovers, unforced errors and many missed shots from bot sides. The halftime score was just 21-19 in favor of Pick One. Back and forth, as niether team took a large lead. As the game went on, it was just 30 - 30 with just 8 minutes to play. That's when things got interesting. Purple Mafia's Jamir and Matt, both scored big baskets as Pick One's Brian kept Pick One in the game. Back and forth..and at the end of regulation, we were tied..so on to overtime. In overtime, Purple Mafia took control and in the end, they captured thier first MCAL Title!
The A Divison was a bit different. A fantastic game or much of the first half, as Lee Turner's Team and Defending Summer Season Champion, Hot Shots stayed close throughout the half. Hot Shots Barry and Antwan, kept Hot Shots moving strong. At the end of the first half, it was Hot Shots with a 6 point lead, 37 - 31. The second half was the demise for Lee's Team as the younger, more athletic Hot Shots began to run the scoe up as they took a 20 point lead with 12 minutes still to play in the first half. It did not get much better for Lee's team, as Hot Shots won..and big..82 - 55 for thier second title in as many years! Congrats to all teams!
