Pinelands force Game 3

The champs are still alive.

Makela Walcott had all 13 of her points in the second half, including a late clutch jumper as Preferred Insurance Brokers Pinelands forced a deciding Game 3  via Saturday’s 84-77 win over Massy Duracell Cougars in the No.1 Beauty Supplies & Beauty Exchange Women’s basketball finals.

It was the much-needed bounce-back performance after the two-time queens literally dropped the ball a couple days earlier by losing Wednesday’s series opener at the same Barbados Community College floor.

And they seemed certain of handing Cougars the title too after blowing yet another double-digit finals lead to fall behind 64-58 early in the fourth quarter.

But Walcott rebounded from a miserable showing of her own, drilling one step-back jump shot after another to key a 12-0 Pinelands rally that gave them the lead for good at 70-64. (JM)
