San Pedro Tiger Sharks handed Cayo Western Ballaz Their First Loss!!!

The undefeated Cayo Western Ballaz (3 - 1) went to San Pedro to take on the Tiger Sharks (3 - 1) in front of a packed house, as the game kicked off with a lot of intensity. Tiger Sharks jumped out to an early 9 - 6 lead that they were able to maintain at the end of the first quarter, as they lead 18 - 16. At half time the lead was 33 - 30 in favor of the home team, and the defense of both teams were extremely physical, which accounted for the low first half score.

In the third quarter San Pedro outscored Cayo Western Ballaz 22 - 8 to balloon the lead to 20 points, as they were cruising to a blow out. However, in the 4th quarter Western Ballaz shifted to a man-to-man defense that brought them back into the game, trimming the lead to 5 points with 2 minutes to go, behind Farron Louriano's two monster dunks and some fast break points. Down the stretch Winston Pratt's penetration to the rim was too much for the team from the West, and Ashton Edwards three pointer sealed the victory for San Pedro Tiger Sharks. Both teams are now at the top of the standings for the National Elite Basketball League, boasting 3 - 1 records.
