Bulls and Pinelands face-off
It will be a battle between two basketball crazy communities, Clapham and Pinelands, when the second edition of the President’s Cup climaxes tonight at the Barbados Community College Gymnasium.
League champions Burger King Clapham Bulls qualified for the finals with a facile 88-65 win over the Combined Schools Tridents on Tuesday night at the Wildey Gymnasium.
KFC Orange 3 Pinelands enjoyed a similar easy ride on that ticket by ousting last year’s winners Station Hill Cavaliers 86-67.
In spite of Bulls’ captain Akeem Marsh playing a subdued game where he scored a mere six points and grabbed eight rebounds, the Tridents flattered where they interchanged the lead in the first five minutes of the game and actually dictated 12-8 in that quarter, before melting against the Bulls’ offence.
