Pinelands force Game 5

Orange 3 Pinelands are only a win away from retaining the crown, having forced a decisive Game 5 tomorrow by pulling out Monday’s 73-71 thriller over Lumber Company Lakers in the Co-operators General Insurance Premier League basketball finals at the Barbados Community College.
It’s the second time in four years that the two rivals will be going the distance in a championship series after the Pine came from down 0-2 to stun Lakers in the 2014 finals.
A comeback didn’t look likely this time though, as the champs seemed all but buried just two nights earlier while giving 44 points to Keefe Birkett in a 22-point Game 3 drubbing. (JM)
