Winter 2002 Championship Game Summaries

 

March 7th, 2002

Congratulations to all the teams that qualified to play in the Championship games. On Wednesday night the 3rd-4th grade girls, 5th-6th grade girls and 5-6th grade boys competed in their respective divisions for the chance to be champs of their particular divisions. Tonight the 3rd-4th grade boys competed in their championship game. All the games were close and came right down to the end. The players played hard till the end and the coaches coached hard till the end.

3rd-4th Grade Girls

We started Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm with the 3rd-4th grade girls championship. Team 3402 played team 3403 in a game that was very low scoring and close down to the wire. Both coaches did a great job and all the players played their hearts out but team 3402 finally prevailed, 16 to 9 with Kelly Brown scoring 12 of the 16 points. Dani Parkhurst and #10 (her name wasn't on the sheet) also scored for team 3402.

 Taylor Dunlap was high scorer for team 3403 with 6 points. Gabbie Lout and Rachael also scored for team 3403.

5th-6th Grade Girls

The 7:30 game featured the 5th-6th grade girls division Championship game. Team 5604, coached by Gary Darling, and team 5605, coached by Clarence Jacobs. There was not much scoring in this game and what scoring there was came in streaks. The lead went back and forth most of the game. Team 5605, the Lady Ballers, finally won 20 to 16 with Lakeisha Colter scoring two big layups in the last minute of the game to ice it for The Lady Ballers. Colter scored 18 of the Lady Ballers 20 points. Rachel Allen added the other 2 points for the Lady Ballers. 

Alyssa Rosselli was high score for The Chilli Peppers with 7 points. Alyssa Lout, Catter Jones, Trameice Hebert, Jill Gavlick and Elizabeth Brack also scored for the Chilli Peppers.

5th-6th Grade Boys

The 8:30 game was for the Championship of the 5th-6th grade division. All the playoff games in this division were very close and almost any of the teams could have made it to this championship game. But only team 607, coached by Alan Money, and team 606 coached by Jim Denton actually made it. This was a very good match up with many of the players and coaches from other teams were in attendance. They came expecting to watch a good game and they were not disappointed.

Team 607 finally won the game 44 to 29 but the game was close up till the very end. Coach Denton's team struggled at the beginning of the game. Denton's team fell behind 19 to 6 at the end of the first half. Coach Denton's talk at half time must have helped because team 606 cut team 607's lead to 7 points, 30 to 23, at the end of the 3rd period. But Nick Witheril was to much for team 606, scoring a game high 21 points. William Bond and Kyle Hoffman had 6 points each , Robert Carol added 5. David Money and Ethan Dye also scored for team 607. Alex Zener was high score for team 606 with 11 points and Andrew Bryant had 9 points. Michael Schmitt and Andrew Krchmery also scored.

3rd-4th Grade Boys

The championship game in this division was not expected to be a high scoring game. After all these are 3rd and 4th graders playing on 10 foot hoops. But fool us they did because there were a total of 88 points scored in this game.

This game featured team 403, the Blue Devils coached by Paul Sieczkowski, against team 408, the Sky Hawks coached by Lionel Hollins (Lionel couldn't make it so his son filled in for him). Both of these teams were well coached and it showed in the way the both played. The final score was team 403 46, team 408 42.

The lead changed several times during the game and either team could have won. Both teams had some scorers tonight. The Blue Devils, team 403, were led by Justin Sieczkowski and Kyle noon with  with 19 points each. The Blue Devils Casey Sagger and Austin Phillippe also scored.

The Sky Hawks were led by Austin Hollins with 19 points and David Whitmore added 12. Peter Kelly, Marcus Plunkett, Eric Flores, Nick Galvin, and Jordan Mitchell also scored for the Sky Hawks.
