LVL moves to 3-0 and extends a 13 game winning streak.

(For Immediate Release)

Pismo Beach, CA – With the fog setting in over the coast and the sun going down, two of the top teams clashed in Pismo Beach for sole possession of first place in the Arroyo Grande men’s league. With someone consuming large amounts of garlic for lunch, the starting 5 contemplated if they were going to be able to take the court with the awful stench that was emitted during warm ups.

In front of a crowd with standing room available, LVL and Splash Down started out in a shootout, with Tom scoring the first 5 points of the game to match Splash Downs fire from behind the arc. The intensity continued to rise, with the game growing more and more physical. Splash Down was taken by surprise when player/coach Hank ripped off his suit and tie and checked into the game. Confusion by Splash Down’s team ensued and led for open offensive opportunities for LVL. Elbows the the face, jabs to the gut, and technical fouls fueled the fire for LVL to hold a comfortable lead after the 10 min mark.

With 3 seconds left on the clock in the first half, Justin threw a 3/4 court alley-oop from out of bounds to Kasey… the ball ended of getting wedged in between the basket and the backboard for a jump ball call but the play drew some more momentum for LVL going into halftime. Kasey injured his shoulder on the rim during the play but x-rays were negative.

The second half proved to be an even tougher battle, but LVL kept its commanding lead with Aaron and Ryan dominating the boards down low. Around the mid-way point of the second half, Splash Down’s attempt to chisel away at the lead was extinguished when Miguel whittled his way into the lane for a couple jumpers and a finger roll off the glass. Phil, Greg and Troy came off the bench and put in solid minutes to secure the victory in the final minutes.

When the lights tuned off and the crowd went away, LVL availed to extend the Central Coast’s longest men’s league winning streak to 13 games, and notched its 3rd win the of the season.

The “Wolfpack” rallies on.
