Summer 2005: A2 League Champs: Stackpole


    Stackpole 63 Route 6 57

    This was the match up I was waiting for all season.  The two giants battling it out: Russell vs Chamberlain, Yao vs Shaq, Vlade Divac vs Mark Blount.  Well, maybe not the last one, but anyways Walsh against the Chise, anything could happen.  Stackpole gained the first half lead behind my man Togs lighting it up from the perimeter (13 1st half pts).  For Rt 6, Walsh (19pts) was leading the way, as usual, scoring from inside and a couple of treys from way back.  In the second half, we found out why we call him the Chise.  Not only did he hold Walsh to 6 second half points, but he dropped the game high of 25 points, mostly scoring in the 2nd half.  Rt 6 definitely wasnít going down easy as Brent Cardeiro (18pts) and Tim Gaspar (16pts) both stepped it up big time for the struggling Walsh in the second half.  However, it wasnít enough as Stackpole flexed their first place muscle and defeated the struggling Rt 6 team

    Showtime 65  Red Rum 68

    Big win for RedRum last night, as they clinch the #2 seed in CRFCís September madness, with the defeat of Showtime.  It looked like the game was going to be a push over early, as RedRum jumped out to a 13 point first half lead led by Danny ODís team high 26.  In the second half, RedRum looked sluggish to say the least.  The commish took full advantage of this and pushed the tempo.  Tim Hinkel (16pts) and Greg Poulos (19pts) started scoring at will, cutting the RedRum lead to 3.  Eventually, Showtime would tie the game, but that is when RedRum made their final push as Dirty (19pts) hit 3 after 3 to regain a comfortable lead.  Unfortunately, Showtime didnít throw in the towel.  Jim Meldrim (26pts) came up huge in the final minute, hitting consecutive 3ís to make the game close again.  I have to hand it to Serge, when the games on the line, the Sergen steps it up.  Needing to hit some free throws to win the game for the second straight week, he delivered and added an exclamation point when he got in the Commishís face over a hard foul.  Sergeís free throws iced the game for RedRum as they get the coveted bye week next Wednesday.

    UCC 64  Evans 71

    UCC continues to struggle, as they got flushed in the toilet bowl game last night.  Evans jumped out to a huge lead in the first half, primarily due to the high team morale, with the return of Joe Skerry. But in the first half, Evans did not look like a 5th place team as they moved the ball and spread the scoring out.  In the second half, the boys of UCC finally decided to play.  Matt Westís 18 points were nothing compared to the D and emotion that he brought to the table.  The Eric ìTreeî Rollins (20pts) and the Goats boy, D-Mac (24pts) didnít disappoint either as they were the spark of the UCC run that got the Evans lead down to 3 late in the 2nd half.  After an Evans time out, they responded to their shrinking lead.  Joe Skerry (25pts) and Jeff ìthe ticking time bombî Holden began dominating.  It came to the point where every time either one of them got the rock, I just put down a 2 in the sheet because it was automatic.  Once Evans regained their composure, it was all over.  With a full squad, do not sleep on Evans in the playoffs.
