The unbeaten run of the Station Hill Cavaliers in the Co-operators General Insurance BABA Premier League competition has come to an end.
Defending champions Orange 3 Pinelands inflicted the first defeat on the youthful Cavaliers side, registering a 69-64 victory at the Wildey Gymnasium last night.
The result left both Pinelands and the Cavs tied for the league’s best record at 3-1.
For the winners, Ramon Simmons and Charles Vanderpool each scored 17 points, while Vanderpool also grabbed 16 rebounds. Hally Franklyn added 13 points and Darren Hunte led the way for the Cavs with 14 points and Saeed Norville scored 10.
Earlier in the opening game, Hilton Barbados Resort Warriors brushed aside the struggling Urban Vybz St Johns Sonics 73-58.
Sonics actually led 40-38 at halftime, before a woeful second half performace –– which saw them score just 18 points –– condemned them to their second loss of the season.
Nicholas King and Daniel Durant both scored 20 points to lead Warriors, while Corey Mcdonald added 13.
Akeem Marsh led the way for Sonics with 18 points. He was ably supported by Stefan Clarke and Dwayne Kellman, who scored 16 and 12 points respectively.
