McArthur
Seventh-ranked Cojute (5-5) made lots of trouble for second ranked Brujos Izalco (9-1) on Sunday. Brujos Izalco managed to secure only two-point victory 81-79. However their fans expected much easier game. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Cojute. Brujos Izalco looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Brujos Izalco made 7 blocks. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was forward Garland McArthur (197-88, college: Voorhees) who had a double-double by scoring 29 points and 13 rebounds. Guard Christopher Blake (197-88, college: Detroit Mercy) chipped in 20 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 blocks. Power forward Anthony Moe (206, college: Millersville) produced a double-double by scoring 26 points and 19 rebounds for the guests. Brujos Izalco have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain second place with 9-1 record having just three points less than leader Santa Tecla. Cojute at the other side dropped to the ninth position with five games lost. Brujos Izalco are looking forward to face Quezaltepeque (#5) at home in the next round. Cojute will play against Santa Ana (#13) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Undefeated leader Santa Tecla delivered the eleventh consecutive victory. This time they beat 14th ranked Arcense (1-10) 100-91 in San Salvador.
