– Ravens survive Masters scare
Jason Squires continued his strong offensive leadership for Pepsi Sonics Sunday night,
ensuring his team remained unbeaten in a victory against Linden’s Victory Valley Royals when the third Phillip George Legacy tournament continued at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Squires shot his way to 18 points to lead all individual scores in Pepsi’s 78-69 win. His support came from Colis ‘Forty’ Pluck, who has improved his mid-range game massively; Pluck had 15 points with Trevor Smith and Sheldon Frank adding 11 points each.
For Royals, shooting guard, Chris Williams had 15 points, while Harold Adams had 14 points as the Linden team that has marched up the ranks in the Mining Town after winning its anniversary tournament this year, suffered another defeat in Georgetown.
Earlier in the night, top of the table, Nets had a walkover Berbice Rockers, which improved their record to 3-0, having also beaten Pacesetters and Ravens. Nets and Sonics, from opposing groups are bound for the semi-finals given their tournament record.
Ravens almost got a scare on the night, when in another game without Coach, Darcel Harris they struggled against the Georgetown Masters, eventually eking out a 65-62 win in the final minutes of an encounter that featured an aging Masters team.
In fact, the Master led throughout the game after taking the first quarter 18-16; the Masters then led at halftime 32-26 and 47-43 after the penultimate period. It is in the final quarter that Ravens managed to stave off the team from yesteryear in the tournament.
Jermaine Slater dominated the boards for 17 points with Dominic Vincente adding 10 points to control the offence for Ravens. Aubrey Young and Lugard Mohan had a good night against their former team before becoming RIBA referees with 19 and 16 points respectively.
