Upper Darby, PA – It was not a buzzer beater, but a solid effort all around from Danny’s Boys who took home a decisive win over the first place Kings. The undefeated Kings were flying high these past four weeks, but the Boys led by Big Jim Armenakis’ and his twenty-two points had something to prove in arguable what is considered the best rivalry in the PGBL.
Wolfpack 50, Hellas 45
The Wolfpack took apart Hellas on Thursday night and are now tied for first place with the Kings at 4-1. The Pack has been playing through a few injuries, especially their loss of LSG who will likely be back later in the season. Mike Vlahos carried the day for the Boys and led all scores with 25 points.
Danny’s Boys 65, Kings 51
We were all waiting for this one. The most exciting matchup of the night and definitely the season featured two teams with a lot of offensive attack. When the dust settled, late in the second half, the Armenakis-Kathopoulis machine had worn out an injured and tired Kings who finally lost their first game of the year. Jim Armenakis (24)and Pete Kathopoulis (16) combined for a total of 40 of the team’s total 65 points.
PAS Giannina 41, Lakers 34
It kicked off to a slow start. Neither PAS Giannina or the Lakers looked like they knew where the basket was. For the first 7 minutes, the two teams exchanged only three total buckets in this low scoring offensive affair. Evan Tsikalas came alive and led his team with 18 points and rebounded from their loss last week. Although the newly formed Lakers have lost three in a row, they show great promise, once they begin to get their team to gel.
