Semi-Final: #4 Saints (54) v. #1 Guap (61)

The Final Four is now upon us! It’s been a long and arduous season with many ups and downs but after it all four teams still stand and in the first semifinal game we have the 5-2 Saints taking on undefeated Guap!
Excitement filled the gymnasium as the Saints took the floor! Every season they were the door mats but this season they were the ones busting through! Captain Mike Lim was excited that his team was in the final four! They had all their key players show up so there weren’t going to be any excuses! Their “D” stepped up the first quarter holding Guap to 1-10 fgs (10%) shooting. Paolo (16pts) and Jon (11pts) combined for 27pts on 10-20 fgs (50%). Dave was again a man playing amongst boys! His 11rebs led all players but they were trailing at the half, 33-25!
The undefeated Guap squad had played this season flawlessly! They played as a team this season under the leadership of team Captain Adonis! I have seen this group of guys grow up from snot nosed kids to young men and their play showed it! After being down after the first quarter Guap bounced back outscoring the Saints 24-15 to take the lead at the half. Although, their lead was cut in half after the third quarter Guap showed their resilience! Maynard led the way again with 18pts on 6-13 fgs (46%) shooting and Adonis added 12pts and 3blks as Guap held off the Saints, 61-54!
Thanks goes out to the Saints for never giving up! Great season guys! Hope to see you soon!
