Sports News…May 26 2010 – The Nevis-based Joseph Parry CG Rebels continued their win-streak in the LIME SKABA Premier division on Saturday with an upset victory over the defending Champions Horsford’s Ghetto Roots.
The Ghetto Roots obviously took the Nevis champions lightly as the team began the game with just 5 players while the CG Rebels came in full force and ready to defend and maintain their unbeaten streak. The Rebels led for the first 2 quarters as the Ghetto Roots 5 played sluggish throughout. By the end of the first half the CG Rebels were up.
By the start of the 2nd half the Ghetto Roots was closer to full strength and took control of the game as they won the final 2 quarters of the match. However the first half advantage by the CG Rebels was a little too much for the Ghetto Roots. The Ghetto Roots suffered their first loss since the end of the 2009 season, 94-85. Carlos Monzac had an exceptional game with 22 rebs and 20 points for Ghetto Roots while the CG Rebels were le.d by Jenerson France. Cotton Ground Rebels are now the only undefeated team in the SKABA League.
