Bronx Crisis storms into finals
Sports Page – Wednesday 5th June 2013 — A delay due to a slight power outage was not sufficient to hold back Bronx Crisis, as they stormed into the finals of the ongoing local Basketball league, hosted by the Nevis Amateur Basketball Association.
The Bronx men came up against neighbours PJ’S at the Grell Hull-Stevens Netball Complex on Tuesday night-4th June, in the second of the best of three play offs.
Bronx Crisis had won the first game by the narrowest of margins-a mere one goal and both teams were determined to win this one.
Bang on the buzzer for the first quarter, a section of the lights went out with the score on 13 to 10 in favour of the Bronx team and this left a portion of the court in virtual darkness. The referees played it safe and the game was delayed for quite some time before the lights returned.
For the remainder of the game, the PJ’S team seemed somewhat sluggish coming out of the blocks and enjoyed their best time on court in the third quarter but the Crisis team sealed the deal in the final quarter to book their place into the finals and leave PJ’S in the cold until next year
