The Fall League: GAIS JV Defeats the Bucks in Double OT

Fall League Highlights (Week 2):  GAIS JV vs Bucks

Most of the players on the Fall League's Bucks' roster have participated in a significant portion of our leagues and tournaments over the past twelve months.  I have watched this group improve rapidly over this time period.  The guys play together and play hard.  And they are young and full of potential.  Calling the Bucks' week 2 opponent a "JV" team is a bit of a stretch.  Four of GAIS's starters contributed greatly in GAIS's varsity division games that same day.  So I knew my Eagles would be in for a battle in the finale at Evans High School.

The Bucks controlled the game throughout until a late flurry by the GAIS JV team eventually forced two overtime sessions.  But the Eagles benefited from aggressive defense and solid decision making on the fast break, which led to easy baskets and a late game comeback before prevailing in double overtime.  See the highlights above.
