10-31-2010 | Lions Roar past Wolverines, take Tier 2 5th Place

By Lee Baum

It was a sluggish start for both teams which was expected due to their late night victories last night and the early start this morning. However, Atlanta seemed to wake up first and started to put some points up on the board and went up 8-2 due to some points and rebounds by Avi Goodfriend. Atlanta’s defense stymied the Wolverines, and they were up 13-4 at the end of the first quarter.

It was more of the same in the second quarter, as the Lions kept up the pressure and were up 20-8 at halftime. Atlanta continued to build the lead in the third quarter as Westchester could not get on track.

Westchester made a strong push to get back into the game with some full court pressure of their own which seemed to rattle Atlanta. In the end, Atlanta was too strong and held on for an impressive 38-23 victory.
