Another night of championship action went down at SARC on Thursday night. Let’s see who was the last team standing!
To get things started, although they didn’t make the playoffs, How Bow Dah had a nice night taking 2 wins to wrap up the season. They took apart Barracudas 20-10 without breaking much of a sweat! Their next game, against Nothing But Nets got a little tougher in the paint but they hit some killers 3s that took them to a 20-16 victory. Nice night and nice season!
In the semi-finals, both games were hard fought with none of the teams wanting to get booted out next. First up was CU Next Thursday taking on the always tough Cash Me Outside. This game could have gone either way with lots of physical play underneath and man to man defenses that stuck like glue!! In the end, Cash me outside hit a female shot to break the tie and get the win….20-18! On to the finals for the royal blue jerseys!!
In the other semi-final match up, Cap City Ballers took on Geeks N Sneaks. These 2 teams have a history of close duels and Thursday night was no exception! They matched each other shot for shot with some timely steals and offensive rebounds that counted. Geeks N Sneaks took the close one 20-17 to take their spot in the finals. YESSSSSS!
The finals pitted Geeks N Sneaks against Cash me outside with both teams ready to rumble for the trophy! Both teams competed well and maintained great sportsmanship through tough close games. There was not one team that was more dominate than the other. This was a toss up play off and anyone could have won it. Tired legs be damned, both teams fought for rebounds and takeaways. Although it was close throughout, Cash me outside held on to their lead and took the win 20-14. Congrats to the blue team!!
After the game, it was on to Toss Pizzeria – good vibe as always with lots of pizza to eat and beer to drink. Good sportsmanship was the word of the night along with great fun and awesome camaraderie! Let’s do it all again this next season!
