Fall 2011: A 5v5 League Champs: Boneyard

    Boneyard completes season with huge win over Invasion
    Invasion 54 Boneyard 64

    Boneyard had to pull out all the stops against a tough Invasion squad, but were able to win the A 5v5 Championship with their 64-54 win. The biggest factor that decided this game was the three ball. Boneyard hit 11-25 from distance while Invasion only made 5-23.

    The first half started off great for Boneyard as they had an early 8-2 lead thanks to back-to-back threes from Jeff Dickson and Chris Vetrano to start the game and then a nice move from Ryan Cain to duke a couple defenders.  Cain also hit a huge three with a defender in his face that gave Boneyard the 16-5 lead. Invasion went on an 11-0 run at this point that was capped off by a Luke Owings putback.

    Invasion got their first lead of the evening, 19-18, on a deep triple from Joe Pagliuca. The lead was 22-18 after a tough drive from Luke where he got fouled hard. Luke hit the free throw for the old-fashioned three-point play. Boneyard was not down and tied the game at 26-26 when Steven Furber hit a wide open three-pointer.

    Boneyard retook the lead when Ryan split a couple defenders and hit a tough layup that made it 28-26. Invasion answered this layup with a drive to the basket by Dillan Shaffer-Hines. Dillan was fouled and nailed the free throw to give Invasion the 29-28 lead with one minute left in the first half. In the final seconds of the half, David Mok stole the ball and passes it off to Joe who nails a three with 1.1 seconds left on the clock. Boneyard could not get the shot off in time and the halftime score was 32-28 with Invasion in front.

    Boneyard started to chip away at this small lead of Invasion to begin the second half. Jeff hit both of his free throws to cut the lead to 40-38 with 16:15 remaining in the game. Doug Miller gave Invasion their biggest lead at 44-39 thanks to a strong move at the rim. Boneyard took over from this point and went on 9-0 run that concluded with a fast break opportunity by Brett Dickson thanks to a steal by MVP Jimmy Marois. The lead was now 48-44

    The next possession was horrible for Invasion as Mick Manzo threw a pass too hard for Tomas Balcetis to handle and the ball went out of bounds for the turnover. Jimmy capitalized on this turnover by hitting a deep three to make it 51-46.

    The lead was 57-46 with 6:45 remaining after Jimmy hit a three-pointer from the corner. With 4:45 left, Steven hit a deep three as Luke was running at him to give Boneyard the 57-49 edge.

    In the final minutes, Steven had a huge offensive rebound off a missed one-and-one opportunity for Boneyard that ended with Ryan hitting both ends of their next one-and-one that brought the lead to 59-49 with 205 left in the game. Ryan had a huge steal with 1:15 remaining. Boneyard hit 7-11 of their free throws down the stretch and Invasion could not hit many shots in the final minutes to make this a closer game.

    MVP, Jimmy Marois, had a game-high 17 points and was able to grab five rebounds. He also was 3-7 from distance. Chris went 2-6 from three-point land with 14 points. He was also 4-7 from the free throw line. Jeff added 13 points and was 3-4 from deep.

    Luke had a team-high 15 points as he hit 4-5 from the free throw stripe, but was only 1-8 on his three-point attempts. He also collected 17 rebounds for the double-double. Doug added 13 points and Joe finished with 10 points.

    This was a great season guys and can’t wait to see who can win it all next session! Have a great holiday break!
