La Fortuna 56, Alsco-Geyer Bulls 50

La Fortuna went out to an early and large lead of 14 points building a lead off a barrage of three pointers. La Fortuna scored 18 of their first 22 points from behind the three-point line. However the Alsco Bulls went off on a 20-8 run closing the margin to just 2 right after the half.

This brought the game to a tight finish, a 3 point lead by Fortuna with a minute to play. After a series of tense misses Hugo Pineda hit his seventh trey of the afternoon to ice the game and win it for La Fortuna. The win put them in a tie with H&R Block Savages for fourth place.

Swat 57. Vann Bros. Young Gunz 18
While the game had a surprising start with the Vann Bros Young Gunz leading near the halfway point of the first half, everyone, including the players were waiting for Swat to “go off”. And Swat did “go off” , in their characteristic wide open game and some long range shooting. After a 27-10 run, Swat was on “cruise” and pulled off their fifth win of the season to stay 1 game behind the Hoosiers. Swat was led by David Tapia with 14 points and the Young Gunz were led by F Hernandez, A Pina and Muniz all with 4 points.
CalFoods Hooisers 46, H&R Block Savages 35
In a rematch of last seasons finalists the California Foods Hoosiers matched up with the H&R Block Savages. The game was a back and forth match as the team alternated leads – the Savages going up by 4, then the Hoosiers leading by 6, followed by the Savages leading by 2 and a following push by the Hoosiers to go up by 6 again. Then the Hoosiers went on a 12-4 run at about the 10 minute mark of the second half. The absence of any inside play by the Hoosiers eventually found its way to the scoreboard as H&R pulled to within 5 points with just over 2 minutes to play. But the Savages were not able to connect on any more baskets while the Hoosiers hit 2 three pointers and holding on to an 11 point victory. The low scoring contest was led by TJ Ellison of H&R Block with 19 points while the Hoosiers balanced scoring had Sal Durantes with 8 points, Margo Lievanos with 7 and Andy Corona, Mike Corona, and Brian Bodart with 6.
