Grand Finale 13U Preview: Once Again It's On!

The Grand Finale is finally here and the teams are ready to chase the banner. Here’s a preview for each age group. We wish all the teams’ good luck and see you Saturday. 

Grand Finale 13U Preview 

CBC: The “Money Team” has taken the region by storm now they only have to be good for one more Saturday to that banner hanging in the Hartford Boys and Girls Club. The title slipped away from them last year now they will try and seize the moment. Coach Hatchett has his team hungry, “When the season started our goal was to bring national recognition to our organization. Last weekend at the MIT we didn’t represent CBC in the manner we are used to. All the potential matchups are familiar foes but we are coming with a new attitude, so we are not the same team they are used to playing.” 

Team Final: TF has been on a hot streak lately now here’s their chance to win all the marbles. They have a balanced attack and Coach Hildago feels they are ready, “We will win because we are peaking at the right time. Our team chemistry has come together. We actually play for each other” he said. 

Milbank: “The Bank” is the Dark Horse in this event. But don’t sleep on this group they always find a way to stick around long enough. Now they just have to go on a two game winning streak. The Milbank skipper showed some confidence, “The players have been working extremely hard and are ready to unleash a balanced attack on both ends of the court. The Flyers are battled tested and will come to win the banner” he said. 

 Team IZOD: They say the heart of a champion is huge well we win see on Saturday, as TI will try to defend their Grand Championship. Let’s see if the Big Red Machine has one more run. Coach Pierre-Louis responded like a season vet, “We feel we have a great chance to win this tournament because of our preparation and attention to detail.”
