Last week the Spurs won the 3rd/4th grade championship game in the Master Your Sports Open League Basketball Playoff Tournament in Carmel Valley. They defeated the Rebels 32-29 in an extremely close semi-final game (in overtime) to advance to the finals. In the championship game, they played the legendary “Pony Power” team. This was a rematch of the 2012 Spring League championship game where Pony Power defeated the Spurs. After falling behind 12-4 in the first 10 minutes of the game, the Spurs fought back to take a small lead at half-time, 17-16. In the 2nd half, the Spurs pulled ahead with some great jump shots and layups and never looked back, finally winning the game 44-29. The Spurs effort included a fast break offense along with a relentless defense. The win capped a memorable season for the Spurs team.
