PFOL Finals Game 1

PLB – 65
Forecasted Showers – 46

On paper Game 1 of the PFOL Finals looked like a blow out. In reality the game was much closer than the final score indicated. Forecasted Showers playing without star Edmound Elzy kept the game close until PLB pulled away late in the 2nd half. Graham Nueburger had his best game as a PFOL player as he scored 16 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, dished out 12 assists and had 6 steals. John Griffin hit some timely 3’s that put the game out of reach in the 2nd half. Dave Neff chipped in with a 13 and 12 performance as well.

Forecasted Showers was lead by Eric Flatt who put up a gutsy 16 point 16 rebound game. “This just shows you what I can do when I get the ball” said Flatt.

Game 2 is scheduled for Dec 28th.

McAlister's Deli Game Summary - Week 9

Baston Jacks - 48
Forecasted Showers – 52

Forecasted Showers ended their season on a winning note and now have some momentum as they head into the playoffs next week. Their 52-48 win over Baston Jacks on Friday was their 3rd win in 4 games and they are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Despite their recent success, rumors are floating around that there is a fued between Edmound Elzy and Eric Flatt. A source who wished to remain anonymous said he over heard Flatt tell Elzy that he wanted a trade. Flatt said he is “sick of this team and I want out”. A heated verbal exchange then took place behind closed doors. The source said that Flatt was upset because he didn’t get the ball enough. He quotes, “I had Melby on me for 5 straight possessions and I couldn’t get the #@*%ing ball!”

Despite their internal bickering Forecasted Shadows will turn their focus to the reigning PFOL champions, 3-Peat.

Baston Jacks find themselves ending the season on a 3 game losing streak. They hope to regain their mid season form next week as they host the #2 seed Patriot League Bombers.

3-Peat - 59
Patriot League Bombers – 58

Friday’s game between Patriot League Bombers and 3-Peat had the league title on the line. The winner of the game would claim the #1 seed and the PFOL regular season title. The game was close throughout as there were 18 lead changes. Richie Smith gave 3-Peat their final lead on a step back 3 in the corner with 10 seconds left to put his team up 59-58. John Griffin had a look to win the game but the shot clanked off the rim and Stutzman’s flip shot at the buzzer from behind the basket fell short.

3-Peat heads into the playoffs looking for their third Championship in a row. PLB will be heading into the playoffs looking to prove doubters wrong. Of late, many experts are doubting the depth and experience of PLB, calling them very one dimensional.

McAlister's Deli Game Summary - Week 8

Patriot League Bombers 57
Forecasted Showers 50

Both teams were missing their best players on Tuesday afternoon. PBL was playing without their star John Griffin and Forecasted Showers without Edmound Elzy. PBL used a combination of hustle, scrappy defense and solid shooting from Graham Neuburger to send Forecasted Showers to their 6th loss of the season with a 57-50 victory.

Eric Flatt tried to get his team fired up and was much more vocal than in past games. One person on the sideline compared this to when Michael Jordan retired and Scottie Pippen had to take over the Bulls. Flatt is the Pippen of this team and the pressure was all on Flatt’s shoulders. Jason Rost and Bob Herzog stepped their games as they scored 18 and 16 respectively. But in the end, the 1-2-3 combo of Neuburger, Stutzman and Neff proved to be too much for Forecasted Showers to handle as Neff scored 17 and Stutzman scored 14.

3-Peat 69
Baton Jacks 58

Before Tuesday’s game the injury ridden 3-Peat team signed Free Agent Steve Reitan to a 10-day contract. Despite the signing, 3-Peat still only fielded 4 players when they took on Baston Jacks Tuesday. However, 4 players proved to be all they needed as 3-Peat blew out Baton Jacks 69-58 to remain in a first place tie with PBL. Alex Montagano started off the scoring by hitting three 3 pointers in the first 5 minutes. Montagano ended up with 31 points on 7 for 10 shooting from behind the arch.

Baston Jacks played for the second week without All-Star center Pat Sullivan. They struggled to defend the quickness of 3-Peat. “We obviously missed the big guy in the middle today’’, said Alan Mowrey

Mowrey scored 23 points and Jason McGuinness scored 17 in a losing cause.
