    GOAT SHIT lives up to championship pedigree

    After their semi-final victories on Monday the stakes were set for the first Over-30 Legends championship since 2019 with #3 seed Goat Shit taking on #1 seed Old Country Buffet. This was a tough matchup to predict since both teams brought a ton of CAC experience and individual playoff success to the table. Lot of long resumes on either side. The two squads faced off once during the regular season all the way back in week 3 with OCB winning a close overtime matchup. GS had everyone available and OCB were missing sharpshooter and style icon Slick.

    The game started off on the slower side with both teams looking to set up offenses and move the ball around. Mazz attacked the rim and Roberts had a put back O board and it was 5-2 GS. Carlos picked up two quick fouls and would have to take himself out, which seemed like it would be a problem for GS, but Hicks stepped in and played excellently on defense. Mazz made a statement with a halfcourt 3, but Frongi answered with a drive, getting to the line and cashing both free throws. It was 9-8 GS after 10 minutes. Cavano, who had just finished playing in the B-Draft final, tried to answer with a couple of 3’s, but could not get anything to drop. It was looking like his legs were a little gassed, which was not a good deal for OCB. Amir cashed a 3 and Mazz and Bohnaker got to the rim and GS started to pull away. Frongi once again provided a spark for OCB and got an and-1 to close the lead to 18-13 heading into halftime.

    Bohnaker opened up the 2nd half cashing a spot up 3 and Frongi answered with a 3 of his own, 23-18 GS. Roberts went to work in the post, got the bucket and the GS lead was down to 3. Leblanc got a 3 to fall and the game was tied 23-23. Hicks got a bunny to fall and Cavano got an O-board put back and we were still tied with 12 minutes to go. Mazz hit another half-court attempt and it looked like he was primed to take the game over. Frongi got another big time and-1 to keep OCB in it. At this point the two Hall of Famers on Goat Shit (3 if you count Amir) Kap and Mazz turned it on and GS never looked back. Kap hit a 3 and a mid-range and Mazz would find Bohnaker inside and keep attacking the rim and getting to the FT line and GS kept building their lead til they were up 20. OCB fought hard but couldn’t get their shots to fall and Kap/Mazz and company walk away with a well-earned championship.
