CG Massives Edges Out Eagles

By: Curtis Morton

There was an air of tension and anxiety at the Church Ground hard court on Tuesday night. It was obvious with the early show of Basketball fans, in their good numbers, that something exciting was about to happen.

This, as action in the Malcolm Guishard Basketball league continued, with the much anticipated clash between the exciting Youth and Sports Eagles and defending champions, CG Massives.

The first quarter started with the expected intensity and at one point, both teams were tied at 14-all, but in the dying moments of the quarter, Eagles pulled away, to end on a comfortable 20 to 14

Massives bounced back to win the second quarter. Eagles responded by taking the third and it came down to the very last seconds of the game to determine the eventual winner and the heart stuttering finish, Massives managed to hold on to a one point lead, to clinch the game, much to the jubilation of their home town fans.
