Flight fights for city league title

Credit Union lost for the first time this season, dropping the late game Tuesday night to Flight S2S 62-56. Second-place Woodbury Law took advantage of a much-needed bye Tuesday to rest its ailing big men: Dave Randall (broken ribs) and Brigham Church (burned hand), and then took care of business Thursday by downing Fiochhi 55-44.

Church scored 20 for Woodbury despite his heavily bandaged hand, with Garrett Junior High coach Will Ferrence adding 12 points and 12 assists for another trademark double-double. El Rancho crushed Duetto by 38 to keep pace with Woodbury.

Despite Shane Levin scoring 28 points for gRIM reap, nearly half their entire score in their Feb. 13 game against El Rancho, they lost 77-49. With 21 points, Paul Desantis was the top scorer for El Rancho.

And as Flight’s win over Credit Union shows, they are still the defending champs and are poised to make a deep run in the postseason tournament again this year.
