Youth Basketball League - Jr. Midgets
On Saturday, March 17, the Jr. Midgets held their post-season playoffs at the old Wailuku Gym. After easy wins over the Aces and the Kihei Sharks, the Heat and the Eagles played a game that went down to the wire. With less than 10 seconds left in the game, Henry Johnson made a three-pointer, and the Eagles got the win 24-23 to advance to the championship game against the unbeaten Flames, who had earlier defeated the Bulls 42-16. The Eagles took a 16-7 halftime lead. The Flames came back strong in the second half and cut the Eagles lead to 18-17. Henry Johnson was top gun again for the Eagles with eight points, but it was Noah Abreu who kept the Eagles ahead scoring big baskets each time the Flames got close, as the Eagles went on to win the game 26-20. Rex Butihi led the Flames with six points; Michael Villon finished with five.
