Well, it has been finally decided. After many weeks of preliminary games, the two finalists for the NABA league, have officially sealed their spots.
Defending champions CG Rebels had already done so on Sunday night and so it was left to be seen which of the remaining two teams would get the available spot.
The critical match was played on Tuesday night between the Bronx Crisis and the Brantley Church Ground Massives.
It was a tight game throughout with both teams winning two quarters each. However, the Bronx men held their nerves in the final quarter to eventually win by 5 points.
