first_imgBanks DIH/GABA LeagueThe Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association/Rainforest Waters/Malta Supreme League continued on Wednesday night at the Burnham hard-court with two thrilling matchups that left the well-attended spectators stunned.Another night at the hard-court began with the Under 23 division having Pacesetters and Pepsi Sonics on show. For the Pepsi Sonics, it was a bad day at the office, as Pacesetters showcased their might, trouncing them by 45 points.On the winning side, Zion Gray and Troy Davids both netted a game high 18 points, with their teammates Shaquan Gill (15) and Kwesi Roberts (13) contributed to the mountainous score of 91.Pepsi Sonics’ Lemuel Grant (12) and Kelmar Carmichael (10) were not enough of a match, coming up short with 51 points.Speaking after his team’s win, Pacesetters Coach Clement Brush declared he was not surprised by the spectacular performance, since “Pacesetters are the biggest basketball club in the country.”His team is well poised to go all the way to the finals, since the under-23 division will have a new champion in 2018 because of Bounty Colts’ non-participation in this particular division.

Gills netted 30 points for his team, and his dominance was clear, given that Nickosie Allicock was the closest scorer with eight points.The matchup intensified in the fourth quarter when an unexpected three-pointer from Osafa Johnson and unforced turnovers brought their opponents, Vikings, to level scores. What followed next was a movie finish:- with the scores locked and the seconds flying by, Gillis managed to pull out another brilliant shot to secure the winning points via a layup. The Eagles have now won 2 of three games.For the Vikings, Kevin Dey hooped 18 points, skipper Shayne Joseph scored 15, and Jeffrey Wilkinson netted 12 in a losing cause.The action will continue this weekend at the same venue.
