The Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association organized League of Champions 2017 entered the final stage of competition with Bounty Colts' senior and Under 23 sides recording resounding victories in the first round of the best of three finals. Playing at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, Homestretch Avenue on Saturday, the Under-23 Colts took on the challenge from Dyna's Ravens. Both teams entered the finals with only one defeat. However, Colts showed why they were the table toppers at the end of the round robin stages as they thrashed Ravens 66-55. In the first quarter Ravens were on top of their game, gaining an early three point lead with the score 11-14. That lead was further extended to five points with Colts trailing 24-29 by the half way stage. Much did not change for Colts in the penultimate quarter even though they secured a one point advantage that ultimately reduced the deficit to four. But the game changer was a massive 26 point final quarter that saw them bamboozle Ravens as the Dyna's boys were strangled for an 11-point period that saw them lose the game 66-55.
Meanwhile, in the second match of the night, the Senior Ravens team shared the same faith as their Under-23 counterparts, going down to Colts 58-45. In the first period of proceedings both teams were evenly poised showing their solid defensive work, only managing eight points each. The second period saw Colts take a marginal four point lead as the score stood at 24-20 by the half way mark. The third quarter did not offer much justice to a Ravens side who looked to be slipping away slowly as the lead was lengthened to six with the score at 36-30. Like the first game, the final quarter was also the last nail in the coffin and Ravens sunk further behind as Colts netted a 22 point period, seven more than Ravens to lose 58-45. The action continues with the second of the best out of three contest tonight at the same venue from 19:00h.
