Stage Set For a Grand Finale in the 2017 Malcolm Guishard Basketball League

By:Curtis Morton

It was yet another exciting game on Tuesday night, in the 2017 edition of the Malcom Guishard Basketball league, as CG Rebels and Dynasty Ballers, squared off in playoff number two.

The Dynasty team had a right to be confident. After all, they had won over the former champions in the preliminary rounds.

However, it was CG Rebels who dominated the early exchanges.

At half time they were leading by a convincing margin-41 to 28

Dynasty Ballers tied up the third quarter and then came back in the final quarter to dominate in convincing fashion. But maybe, it was a case of ‘too little-too late.’

To show how well they played: With about five minutes remaining, the CG Rebels were leading by what looked like an impregnable 20 points, but the Dynasty players made the best of a few quick turn overs and also sunk some well needed points from the free throw line, to bring the final score down to a mere four points lead, when the final whistle was blown.

Final score:

C G Rebels 70 Dynasty Ballers 66

First quarter Rebels 15 dynasty 8

Second quarter Rebels 26 dynasty 20

Third quarter tied 13
