Chargers one up on Patriots
PATRIOTS’ PLAY-OFF RUN seems headed for another premature end.
As for the Garrison Chargers – they just keep charging on.
Playing in basketball’s Intermediate division for the first time, Garrison took one huge step towards qualifying for the semi-finals when they edged Patriots 69-65 in Game 1 of their best-of-three series in Monday night’s thriller at the YMCA.
The victory ensured that the Chargers’ fairytale run continued, having gained promotion from the Third division last year after playing unbeaten throughout the regular season, only to bow out at the semi-final stage.
And it seems that they may be headed back to the semis again, while another hopeful Patriot championship run, for the umpteenth time, seems destined to end in disappointment.
