LSC take 2-0 lead
THE REAL “SUPER” team seems to have all the power right now.
Title no.5 is now but a game away for Lumber Company LSC, as the defending champs held Pinelands scoreless for five minutes in the fourth quarter en route to Thursday’s 62-59 Game 2 win in the Co-operators General Insurance Premier League basketball finals at the Barbados Community College.
The win gives LSC a commanding 2-0 lead in a best-of-five series that they entered as heavy underdogs to their super-powered opponents led by four national players.
But Keefe Birkett outplayed them all once again, scoring a game-high 18 points while Ian Alexander chipped in with 13. For the Pine, Ramon Simmons and Charles Vanderpool both scored 15, and Junior Moore added 12 points and 13 rebounds.
LSC can sweep Pinelands for the second time in as many finals on Saturday when the series continues at the same venue. (JM)
