Fall 2010: Women’s 5v5 B League Champs: Honey Bee’s Kung Fu

    Honey Bees Sting MVC Take Home 5v5 B Championship
    MVC 39 Honey Bee's Kung Fu 41

    After moving down from the A league at the beginning of the season, the Honey Bees put together an impressive team this Fall, and got past MVC in a two-point win Wednesday night, capturing the league title.

    MVC led most of the game behind the play of Caitlin Masys, who tallied a game-high 18 points. At the end of the first half, her team led 23-18 over the Honey Bees, who were looking for some offensive power.

    MVC held onto the lead in the second, up by seven until the 5:15 mark, when Honey Bee Jackie Blaisdell hit a three to pull her team within four. A few minutes later, Addy Ashiru grabbed an offensive rebound that led to a three by Melina Van Hook. MVC watched as its lead dropped to only one.

    Honey Bee Sara Merrihew then hit a jumper with one minute left to play, giving the Honey Bees the lead for the first time in the game. Lauren Hickey retaliated with a three to put MVC back up, 39-37.

    With 25 seconds left to play, Masys fouled Ashiru, who hit both FTs, tying the games at 39. MVC attempted a shot at the other end, with no luck, and we headed back down to Honey Bee territory with seconds left in the game. At the buzzer, Blaisdell threw up an uncontested jumper. Swish in. Even though it took Ref Pollard a minute or two to make the call, it was clearly a good bucket, and the Honey Bees took home the win.
