Deon Edwin
LEBANON - Walter Hodge (183-PG-86, college: Florida) and Homenetmen overcame a sluggish first quarter before storming past Beirut Club 98-80 to take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-five semifinal series Monday. Hodge finished with 19 points and six assists. The hosts opened with a 9-0 run to force Homenetmen coach Joe Moujaes into rapid timeout. It proved nothing more than brief respite for the visitors, with Beirut retaining their furious tempo and swarming over Homenetmen. Homenetmen trailed 26-19 at the end of the period. Homenetmen would close the half with dizzying scoring blitz to turn the game on its head. Homenetmen ended the second on a 13-4 run to lead 47-42 at the break.
Game two is scheduled for Wednesday in the best of five semifinals.
