De Vuyst vs De Vuyst; Ballers vs Destroyers
When it comes to competing – not much love on the court!!! Just play ball!! And play to win!!!
Those present at YMCA SN on Tuesday (11/20/2012), were witness to maybe the best Liga Minor game of the season. The matchup was with team De Vuyst – Destroyers against their counterpart or brother-team De Vuyst Impact Ballers. Both these teams are from the same club - De Vuyst, who has two teams in the same division – Liga Minor.
One would think brother love would take center stage and we will have a fair and friendly game – But, these two teams went and excel beyond their competitive bounderies, where the edge? Stronger word to express the level and intensity of the game is “combative” and the real weapon was just basketball talent and with craving victory. So, where was the brotherly love here – well it went on vacation, for 40 minutes as both team played with heart and soul for the win and in doing that gave the fans a great basketball game. What else can I say – other than thank you!!
The score was very close and the teams were swapping the lead throughout the game. In the end – a technicality on the official table may have just decided the outcome of the game. These things will happen and it hurts, but that why you get more chances – The competition isn’t decided on just one season game – These will meet again – and when the do… both team will train hard to defeat the other. Because, they know deep down in their hearts that winning by mistake is just as bad losing on the same mistake.
The game end 60-64 with the Ballers taking the win. But, it was a very close game!! They are already talking about the next match between these two teams.
In my opinion basketball won and lost that night – first because only one of the referee was a “no show”, so this game was officiated by only one referee – who by the way did a very excellent job. Fact is the Bond has issues, with referees and they are working to resolve these. The federations extends their sincerest apologies to the team and fans.
The last game for the night was canceled – again due to “no show” of one of the referee.
To compensate for this misfortune, next week Tuesday games (YMCA SN) will free – For all ticket holder of last Tuesday game – save your game ticket.
