Fall 2016: B2 5v5 League Champs: The Palace

    Palace Survives Dimes Back in 2OT
    The Palace 70 No Dimes Back 64

    What a way to close out a great season in the B2 South. Dimes Back came into this game undefeated with a 1-0 edge on Palace in regular season meeting, but they were missing their best defender and a premier slasher in Micah.

    Ilan stepped up running the offense and hitting people for threes, and NDB stood strong in the face of a 13-0 run by Palace to take a big lead in the first half. Altogether Palace went on a 34-6 run to end the first half, capped by a deep three from Payne at the buzzer.

    But Dimes Back kept attacking and clawed back through their defense. Zuk hit a 3 to make it 45-39 and Taylor Hall kept attacking Peterson, who was playing Matador D with his 4 fouls.

    With Palace up 54-48 and about 6 minutes to play Cedric got called for a travel, what! He also got called for two more fouls over the next two minutes and wound up DQ'd.

    Dimes Back kept it close thanks to Taylor finishing on some nice passes and eventually Ilan through up a floater and a prayer that rattled home at the buzzer to make it 60-60 and force OT.

    In the first OT, Payne could've put the game away but he missed two FTs, and Rick Lania hit a shot to tie it at 62 and force another OT.

    Joe hit a big 3 in the second overtime and Palace finally held on for a hard-fought W.
