Season winding down in BSC basketball
Published: Apr 27, 2012
There was some movement of teams in the basketball standings in both the 15-and-under and 19-and-under divisions of the Baptist Sports Council (BSC) on Saturday, as the league continued its regular season before the rain washed out the majority of the men’s games.
In the 15-and-under division, both the defending champions Macedonia and the runners-up, Eagles Nest, finished the regular season with 4-1 win/loss records, but by virtue of winning the head-to-head match-up, Macedonia clinched the pennant. Temple Fellowship ended up in third at 3-2 and will now play Eagles Nest in the sudden death playoff in May. Macedonia will have to wait to see the outcome of Saturday’s game between Hope Centre and St. John’s No. 2 to determine who their opponents will be.
Both Macedonia No. 1 and Eagles Nest are 5-1, but the pennant is still up for grabs with Macedonia No. 2 and Golden Gates right on their trail at 4-2 and Temple Fellowship knocking on the door at 4-3, in the 19-and-under division. The pennant will be decided on Saturday.
As for the men, Macedonia is still undefeated in the ‘A’ division with an unblemished 3-0 win/loss record, and could still wrap up the pennant with two games left. If not, the defending champions Temple Fellowship are sitting in waiting at 4-1 in second place. In the men’s ‘B’ division, there are two undefeated teams in St. Mark’s and the Hope Centre, who are 4-0 and 2-0 respectively. Their pennant is also still hanging in the balance with Golden Gates No. 2 in third with a 3-1 record.
Temple Fellowship defeated St. John’s No. 1 41-24, Eagles Nest defeated St. John’s No. 2 29-24, and Macedonia defeated the Hope Centre, 22-18.
Christian Tabernacle defeated St. John’s 36-30, Macedonia No. 2 defeated Temple Fellowship 40-23, Macedonia No. 2 defeated St. Mark’s, 46-25, Macedonia No. 1 defeated Temple Fellowship 65-37, and Eagles Nest outlasted Golden Gates, 34-23.
