X-Men and Raptors one game away from winning championship

Last night, in front a massive crowd at Lindo Park not withstanding the early evening showers, the Glam X-Men and Gloria Shillingford Raptors proved too strong for the Paix Bouche Eagles and Raffoul Snipers – both going two up in the best-of-five series.

Game 1 – Gloria Shillingford Raptors made a miraculous comeback against the Raffoul Snipers to win the game after being down by 28 points in the second half. However, the Raptors facing certain defeat from a confident Snipers team, slowly chewed into the lead point by point with tenacious defense and clutch plays by Troy Henry and ably supported by Steve Hypolite, tied the game at 68 a piece. With 14 seconds remaining in the game, Troy Henry took the ball right to the basket and got fouled by the Snipers team. Henry successful basket the two shots from the foul line to give the Raptors that miraculous victory. Final Scores: Gloria Shillingford Raptors 70 points and Raffoul Snipers 68 points; top-scoring for Raptors were Troy Henry 19 pts, Steve Hypolite 18 pts and Devon Barton 14, while Lenin Paul 22 pts and Dave Alexis 21 pts. Series now stand at 2-0 to Raptors.

Game 2 – Paix Bouche Eagles, vowing to make a comeback and tie the Premier Division finals 1 a piece, ran into a buzz and could not establish their game; many of their top shooters like Lynvor John and Earl Mathew could not find the range and fell behind the Glam X-Men with stellar play from the X-Men players Joseph Hypolite, Garth Joseph and Simon Joseph. While the Eagles tried their best to get back into the game they just could not overcome the 20-point lead developed by the X-Men. The final score was Glam X-Men 72 points to Paix Bouche Eagles 47 points; top-scoring for the X-Men were Garth Joseph 20 pts, Joseph Hypolite 18 pts and Simon Joseph 11 pts while Andel “Brad” George 23 pts and Earl Mathew 11 pts. Series now stand at 2-0 X-Men
