Defending champs Bounty Colts win in both 2nd and U-23 divisions
The Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association’s 1st, 2nd and Under-23 division tournament continued over the weekend with 5 matches at the Burnham Court.
They were 2 matches on Saturday and three on Sunday. On Saturday, reigning Under-23 champs Bounty Colts defeated Trojans 79-61 in the first match of the night. Colts continued to press for a successful title defence with another victory under their belt. University of Guyana Trojans had no answer for Colts’ Timothy Thompson who netted a game high 37 points in the 18-point win for the champions. He was supported ably by his teammates Jafar Gibbons (17 points) and Daniel Ramlagan (9 points).
For UG Trojans, Kadeem Peterkin led their cause with a team high 24 points inclusive of 3 three-pointers. Darroll Williams (13 points) and Rondel Holder (9 points) battled to prevent the loss.
Pacesetters defeated Nets 66-59 in the second match on Saturday, a first division matchup. On the score sheet for the winners were Jermaine Hamilton (16 points), Nathan Saul (14 points), Jaleel Duke (13 points) and Travis Williams (10 points). For the losers, Nets, Amoniki John’s 13 points and Justin Algu’s 12 points were not enough to overpower the excellent team performance by the Pacesetters.
The first match on Sunday witnessed Plaisance Guardians continuing their dominant form from during the week with another huge victory. Guardians defeated Kobras 91-53 in the Under-23 match up. In the 38-point blowout, Guardians’ Nigel Bowen tossed up a game high 31 points that included 5 three-pointers. Bowen’s superb solo performance was complimented by Guardians’ Jarel Sears (14 points) and Anton Fileen (12 points).
Sunday’s second game was a 2nd division matchup between defending champs in that category as well, Bounty Colts, who made very light work of Pacesetters. Colts defeated Pacesetters 94-44. It was a rough night on the hard court for pacesetters as they suffered an embarrassing 50-point loss. Evans Johnson (24 points) was the most successful scorer in the game, while Yohann Burrowes (15 points), Jafar Gibbons (14 points) and Daniel Ramlagan (10 points) did their part in big win for colts.
Plaisance Guardians won the third and final game on Sunday evening 78-66 against Pepsi Sonics. Nikolai Smith proved to be the main man for the Guardians once again, with a team high 19 points, in the first division match. Jason Squires scored a game high 20 points for Sonics but didn’t enjoy enough support to see his team take the victory.
Matches continue tomorrow night at the Burnham Court from 6:30 pm.
