Upper Darby, PA – Danny’s Boys and the Revolution met up last night for the second time this year. Two of the league’s best were in a close battle, tied at halftime. But midway into the second half, the Revolution took a commanding lead by as much as 12 points at one time. When the final whistle blew, the Revolution had confirmed, that they are the team to be this year in the PGBL.
Revolution 56, Danny’s Boys 49
Pete Kada and the Revolution appear to be on the march to the playoffs and quite possibly the championship. What appeared to be a solid match up with Danny’s Boys, ended up being a second half collapse of Danny’s Boys. Keep in mind that Danny’s Boys was playing without their best player and League MVP, Pete Kathopoulos. That would have made this a completely different game. If they’re going to compete in the playoffs, they’re going to need the help of Jim Armenakis who couldn’t get the ball to drop all night. Either way, you slice it up, the Rev’s ruled the day over Danny’s Boys. Led by Pete Kada and his twenty-eight points, these guys are going to be a tough beat.
Wolfpack 57, Lakers 47
In game one, the Wolfpack beat the Lakers. The game was close all the way through, but that was primarily because Louie Karas kept his team and the tempo steady. When it came time to close the door on the Lakers, they did. Louie Karas and George Vlahos combined for 50 of the team’s 57 points.
King’s 51, Warriors 50
Arguably the most exciting game to watch last night featured two teams sitting in the middle of the standings, the Kings and the Warriors. The Kings continue to fight, even with a lot of team injuries. They came out aggressive and willing to run against the scrappy Warriors and held them off with a winning free throw with just seconds left. Veteran team leader Bill Zonios made it happen. The Kings hold on to fourth place.
