Home: Goons To Glory
Saturday January 30th, 5:00 PM. Fieldhouse
The goons started out a little shady in round two on the road to glory. We didn't know what to expect from this team, dressed like true ballers with sleeves and sweatbands, they backed it up by hitting their fist 4 of 5 shots from behind the arch. Going up by as much as 9 with 8 minutes remaining in the first half. We took a time out and Derek Temple took charge finishing with 10 of the goons 13 points in the first half coming within 5. In the 2nd half Lance (Alex) Poveszil helped out with a group of 3's, 5 steals and his stellar drive to the hoop for the and 1, making the free throw to take the lead with under 10 minutes remaining in the game. Once lance hit the free throw the goons never trailed again, bobby pavliga shut down Diacek, their 1st half lead scorer, he was guilty to 4 fouls but hung in there, making a great steal with under 2 minutes throwing it out on the other team in a diving effort, and getting the time out as he was going out to keep possession, the goons stuck in there and refused to give the ball away in the last 3 minutes after a horrendous turnover keeping the game close. We could have shut them down better, we need to make free throws when they count because we don't get there enough as it is, but we pulled through a pretty competitive team, and the goons are 2-0.
