Good evening, I’m Kaya Cattouse and this is Sports Monday.


In the National Elite Basketball League, Game 1 of the finals took action on the Tigersharks home court in San Pedro. Let’s take a look at the first half of the ballgame. Darwin Leslie, Tyrone Edwards, Winston Pratt, Ashton Edwards and Michael Adams were the starting 5 for the home team. Ivan Flowers, Farron Lauriano, Richard Troyer, Travis Lennan and Kurt Burgess started for the Cayo Western Ballaz. Tigersharks wins the tipoff and tries to score the first basket but Farron Lauriano won’t have it as he comes up with this big block on Tyrone Edwards. As the Tigersharks try to set up this play, Ashton Edwards who sends it to Darwin Leslie who immediately passes to Winston Pratt, Pratt goes up and is fooled…he goes to the line for 2 and sinks 2 of his 14 points. Richard Troyer puts up this 3 point shot but misses. Lauriano grabs the rebound to keep the ball alive for the Western Ballaz.

Troyer tries the 3 point shot again and this time, its cotton! Close to the end of the first quarter, the Tigersharks are up by 3. In the second quarter, Lauriano starts to show his scoring ability when he puts up this jump shot! Count it for 2 of his game high 20 points. Coming down to the next end of the ball court, Pratt pushed this ball to Edwards and he sinks this jump shot. At the end of the second quarter the Tigersharks are now up by 6. Jamal Kelly comes off the bench and drives this one to the basket for 2 of his game high 10 points. Seven minutes 33 seconds remaining in the second quarter and the Tigersharks are still up by 6. Elroy Willis passes this one to Lauriano inside the paint. His first attempt fails but he goes up for the rebound and tips this one in. Jamal Kelly takes this one directly to the rim. Winston Pratt puts up the 3 point shot which bounces off the rim into the hands of Kurt Burgess.

We have a little fumble here then Michael Adams grabs the loose ball and makes the layup. Tigersharks players and fans aren’t happy when the referee says “no basket.” Ivan Flowers grabs this rebound and passes the ball all the way to Travis Lennan, Lennan goes for the layup, Lauriano didn’t want to take any chances, he smashes this one in. at the end of the first half, it’s a 29-21 ball game in favor of Tigersharks. Lets fast forward to the last seconds of the game, the Tigersharks are up by one. Western Ballaz are in possession of the ball. They just could not come up with that bucket to win the ballgame.
