Spring 2007: B1 League Champs: Candymams

    Candymams take down the Kai......comeout best in the West......
    Candymams 63 Cobra Kai 40

    Well it came down to the Mams and the Kai for bragging rights to reign supreme and take a piece of the CAC championship.  Who would have thought that at the top of the mountain, at the end of the road, in the back of the club in the VIP section would be the Cobra Kai...the Bad Boys of the West.  I'll be honest..the Kai was not my preseason choice (not the first and last time I've been wrong) but these guys I can say know how to win and play very well together.  The Kai opened some eyes when they defeated the #1 seed (Raindrops) in the the 1st round and will continue to be a threat in the next league which starts the week of September 16th. 

    Although the Kai was flying high from their 1st round upset they still were a little over matched in the West Side finals.......but this team has the heart of a lion......  Ben The Hard Way had a great playoff run.  Ben scored 13 points, grabbed 3 snatches and dished out 7 dimes.  Ben missed a good part of the season and it was great to see him out there and playing well.  Scott Sonia, aka The Perfect Storm turned in double figures as well 10 points and 5 snatches for his contribution.  The Rev (Jeff Coburn) and The Widow Maker (Jose Torres) added 13 points combined as the Kai kept it close throughout the first half.

    The second was sugar sweet for the Candymams.  They jumped on the Kai for 20 minutes straight in route to the West Side Chip.   Mr. August formely known as the Born Gamer was straight fire....  JaySar netted a game high 18 points, 5 snatches and 8 dimes.  Lethal Chang turned in double digits and added some key bombs to blow this game out reach.......10 points and 5 dimes for my dawg....  Hey..  they chose to leave my man Jimmy Sizzle open... and they paid the price...  Jim added 12 points and dished out 5 dimes for his contribution.    The third part of the 3 headed monster, Jeff Sar, added 10 points of his own as well (Rule #1 - Do not leave any Satori open to shoot at anytime or suffer the consequences).   Mike D and Steve O combined for 16 points but it was Big Steve who was unstoppable and really posed a problem for the Kai when it came to snatches (Steve had 14). When it was all said and done and the smoke cleared and the Candymams defeated Cobra Kai and became the 2007 B1 West Summer League Champs.

    CONGRATS TO THE CANDYMAMS!!!!!!!!!

    The Candymams will now face the B1 East Champs CCSC for the B1 Unification Championship and a chance to win it all...... 

    Please come down and watch if you have sometime...
