It didnt appear that Evangelismos was gelling together today. Tough defense and a bit of late pressing along with a heart felt effort by Stephanie Karalis was more than enough to complete the home turf victory for St. Lukes, who advances to the championship against Holy Trinity in two weeks.

Holy Trinity 42, St. George 34, – (BOYS)
The 1st period appeared to be all St. George of Media who shut out Holy Trinity by a score of 10-0. But it was not to be. although the score was close at half time, Holy Trinities Vasil Stoimenov, (possible the leagues biggest player) turned on his talents, dropping 22 points and leading all scorers.
