**2014-2015 TOWN LEAGUE ENDS **
The 2014-2015 WJBL Town League season ended on Sunday 3/15/15 ("Championship Sunday"). We had a full day of action packed games. A big 'Thank You' to all WJBL players and families for making this another great year of Town League play!
Championship Sunday – Game Highlights (updated 3/17/15)
Hennelly Division (Grades 4 & 5)
Division II (Grades 6 & 7)
The Divison 2 championship was a great battle between the league’s top seeds: South Shore Sports Therapy and Rockland Federal Credit Union. Rockland Federal got the win 34-16 to become this year’s Division 2 champions. In a great physical battle, they pounded the ball down low to Ben Randolph (12 points, 8 rebounds) and teammate Jack Jamieson, who scored 13 off drives and 3-point shooting. Jack Donahue and Jake Eugren (5 blocks) also wrapped up great seasons in the win. For South Shore, the offense was unable to penetrate at times. Nic Tardinco played hard for his squad and controlled the rock alongside Matteo Spadea’s crisp assists and creative takes to the basket. Ayden Doyle and Ryan St. Clair played until the final buzzer for South Shore.
The D2 All Star Game was a battle through the final period, with the Maroon Team winning 44-38. The Gold Team, coached by Coach McDonald in place of Coach Jamieson, led most of the game thanks to impressive offensive efforts from Benny Randolph and Nathan Hraibe. Mary Kate Falco's defense also contributed to the Gold Team's lead. However, due to crucial points from Peter Crisileo in the 6th period and Mike Hastings in the 7th, the Maroon Team--coached by Coach Fulton in place of Coach St. Clair--gained a lead and could not be caught. It's been a great season and the league looks forward to next year.
Leighton Division (Grades 8 & 9)Weymouth Bank and Weymouth Police faced off in the JBL Championship Game. Weymouth Bank fought hard to be crowned JBL champions, winning the game by a score of 38 to 35. Justin Albee and Kevin McGrath combined for 32 of Weymouth Bank’s points to finish the season as the JBL’s best. Weymouth Police played extremely well for the entire game, receiving great efforts from Cam Mason and Vinny Brown. The duo combined for 24 points, leading the team’s tremendous efforts the whole game. Congratulations to both teams on incredible seasons.
The Division I All-Star Game between Gold, led by Coach Kevin Howes, and Maroon, led by Coach Steve Craig, was incredibly high-paced and entertaining. Gold pulled out a 58 to 55 victory behind a great performance from Troy Salmans, who led the team with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Maroon had an incredible three-point attack, led by Amandee Weaber who scored 9 of his 13 points from beyond the arc. Congratulations to all of the All-Stars and good luck next year.
