PLEASE CHECK THE SCHEDULE. I HAD TO MAKE A COUPLE CHANGES. THANKS.
Our very own Junior Hackworth poured in 44 points on 12 threes and his teammate, Sean Arrington, added 26 points, but it wasn't nearly enough as Monstars fell, 109-81, to Hey Arnold! Adam Gomez (See Player of the Week) had 26 points (and 13 rebounds) to lead five players in double figures for the winning team. Wes Begay added 26 and Michael Johnson had 22 for Hey Arnold! The two teams combined to hit a ridiculous 41 three-pointers in the game.
In the final game of the night, Sour Patch Kids scored 24 straight points to erase a first-half deficit. The Kids trailed Trees, 28-21 with two minutes to go before halftime. They scored 16 points in the final two minutes of the half and then the first eight points of the second half to take command of the game. Ashraf Alfatesh led Sour Patch with 19 points.
In the early-day grudge match, Aaron Anderson and Ben Gershman combined for 27 points and 29 rebounds as still got it ran past Icy Hots, 76-53. Danny Hunnicutt had 25 points, including 22 in the second half, to pace Icy Hots.
Donte Williams had 30 points and 13 rebounds as The Hawgs downed Illuminati, 85-66. John Brady hit seven threes and 21 points to lead Hickory past Flying Squirrels, 74-58. Fred Simms had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Benchwarmers in their 50-47 win over FndF. Hector "Saul" Mancinas of FndF just missed matching Simms' achievement, finishing with 21 and 10.
One quick note: because of the nature of adult recreation leagues, I have no problem with teams adding new players as the season goes along. Guys get a new job, they go on vacation, whatever. Unfortunately, sometimes the new additions totally change the character of a team. I make the season schedule after seeing each team play. But if a team belonged in one of the lower divisions when I made the schedule and then added a bunch of really good players and are all of a sudden blowing teams out, I have to step in and adjust things. Having said that, let's just add that The Other Guys will no longer be beating people by 60 points.
Also, if a player is added after a team's second game of the regular season, that player will not get stats for that season. It's a pain to add names to Excel and I simply don't like to do it.
