Senior Division Basketball
Our two Senior Divisions continued play at Kalama Park with two games on Aug. 15. Elite jumped out a seemingly comfortable 22-6 halftime lead, then held on to defeat Alpha 32-28. Elijah Engoring scored 12 points to lead Elite. Josh Divina scored seven points for Alpha.
Lazy But Talented (LBT) and No Idea played a fast-paced game that went back and forth with neither leading by more than five points. Tied 54-54 at the end of regulation, an extra five minutes was needed. At the end of overtime, the score was tied 60-60. League rules limit season games to just one overtime, so the game ended a tie.
