Macedonia Wins The Pennant

THERE was some "jiggling" of teams in the standings in both the 15-and-under and 19-and-under divisions on Saturday as the Baptist Sports Council continued its basketball regular season before the rain washed out the majority of the men's games.

In the 15-and-under division, both defending champions Macedonia and runners-up Eagles Nest finished the regular season at 4-1 but by virtue of winning their head-to-head matchup, Macedonia clinched the pennant.

While Temple Fellowship ended up in third at 3-2 and will now play the Eagles Nest in the sudden-death playoff in May, Macedonia will have to wait to see the outcome of Saturday's game between Hope Centre and St John's No.2 to determine who their opponents will be.

Both Macedonia No.1 and the Eagles Nest are 5-1 but the pennant is still up for grabs with Macedonia No.2 and Golden Gates right on their trail at 4-2 and Temple Fellowship knocking on the door at 4-3. The pennant will be decided on Saturday.

As for the men, Macedonia is still undefeated in the A division at 3-0 and could still wrap up the pennant with two games left. If not, defending champions Temple Fellowship is sitting in waiting at 4-1 in second place.

And in the men's B division, there are two undefeated teams in St Mark's and Hope Centre, who are 4-0 and 2-0 respectively. Their pennant is also still hanging in the balance with Golden Gates No.2 in third at 3-1.
