Ronald
Flores
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked San Marcos as it allowed them to take a leadership position. San Marcos defeated 5th ranked Nejapa at home 80-67. It ended at the same time the ten-game winning streak of Nejapa. San Marcos forced 26 Nejapa turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Ronald Flores who helped to win the game recording 25 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists and Willian Merino (-0) who added 20 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. San Marcos' coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side American swingman Demetrius Thomas (203, college: Cerritos JC) responded with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 24 rebounds. San Marcos have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Nejapa at the other side keeps the fifth place with eight games lost. Nejapa will play next round against Brujos Izalco trying to get back on the winning streak. San Marcos will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked ABA in Apopa.
Eighth-ranked Chalchuapa (5-11) gave a tough game to first ranked Halcones (14-2). The visitors from Sonzacate managed to secure only one-point victory 84-83. However their fans expected much easier game. The winners were led by swingman Luis Valle (190-97) who scored that evening 36 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Sameen Swint supported him with 16 points and 7 rebounds. Even a double-double of 30 points and 19 rebounds by Anthoni Ortriz did not help to save the game for Chalchuapa. Halcones have an impressive five-game winning streak. Despite that victory Halcones went down to second position due to points difference. Chalchuapa lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 11 games lost. Halcones will play against Ahuachapan (#7) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Chalchuapa will play against Pinitos BC in Ahuachapan and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Santa Tecla between Brujos Izalco and ExSAL ST. Sixth ranked Brujos Izalco (9-5) got a very close victory on the road over 3rd ranked ExSAL ST (11-5). Brujos Izalco managed to escape with a 2-point win 65-63 on Thursday evening. Gustavo Galdamez fired a double-double by scoring 19 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals for the winners. Brujos Izalco's coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Daniel Rivas produced a double-double by scoring 17 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals for lost side. Brujos Izalco maintains sixth position with 9-5 record. Loser ExSAL ST keeps the third place with five games lost. They share the position with Arcense. Brujos Izalco will meet at home higher ranked Nejapa (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. ExSAL ST will play against Arcense in San Salvador and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Arcense (11-5) against ninth ranked ABA (5-13) on Tuesday night. Visiting Arcense was defeated by ABA in a tough game in Apopa 88-92. It was a very good performance for Jonathan Zometa who helped to win the game recording 37 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds (perfect from downtown making all five shots). ABA maintains ninth position with 5-13 record. Arcense at the other side keeps the third place with five games lost. ABA's next round opponent will be league's leader San Marcos on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Arcense will play against ExSAL ST and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
11th ranked Pinitos BC (1-16) was outscored at home by eighth ranked Ahuachapan (6-10) with the biggest margin this round 101-63 on Tuesday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Jonathan Maxwell who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Ahuachapan moved-up to seventh place. Pinitos BC lost twelfth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with 16 games lost. Ahuachapan will face Juayua (#10) at home in the next round. Pinitos BC will play against Chalchuapa and hope to win that game.

The most impressive stats of the last round was 20 points and 10 rebounds by Jose Rivas of Juayua.
