It was a wild blasting games last Sunday at Season 3 CityHoops Playoffs Madness! A totally edifying, lively and emotional rampages of games from start to finish. From Magic 8! Down to Final Four. Let's start the recap!
GAME 1 : UNION CITY (24) vs OAKLAND (27)
This game was ungovernable and with a low scoring game we can tell it was all defense that played a major role in this game.
Oakland demoralized Union City in this evidentiary game.
Union City scoring leaders were shut down and got stopped; by well prepared Oakland.
It was a good game plan for Oakland who made the Union City scoring leader Alfie "Rising Star" who got into foul trouble and stopping Neil from making 3's; It was just not happening for Union City in terms with their Offense status. Which Oakland took advantage and secured a win.
GAME 2 : HAYWARD (40) VS SAN JOSE (49)
A game that was declared a "Statement Game,"
San Jose was just monstrous against the reloaded Hayward team!
San Jose played strong and hungrier versus Hayward, It was the Big 3 of San Jose Martin, Juni and Dex who dimes the scoring production and securing to be in the Final Four Spot!
Hayward couldn't match the painted lane against heavy loads of San Jose! Gilbert Tan and Edwin were then productive for Hayward offensive end, but couldn't catch-up with the speed and furiously game of San Jose.
This game proved the assumption of " The more hungrier to win" which San Jose showed and performed aggressively.
GAME 3 : DALY CITY (40) vs FREMONT (60)
Daly City put an end marked to Fremont team.
It was a hell'a memorable game between these 2 teams who played with pride, glory, and rage!
One thing for sure, Fremont won't be crowned back to back in this Season 3 of CityHoops!
It was devastatingly bad loss for Depending Champs Fremont!
Daly City had never been seen frustrating and clueless at any games until last Sunday's Playoffs against Fremont.
Fremont came up really short with their offense and having some missed free throw shots that could give them a double margin in that last 2 mins of the game.
It was Jojo P aka "The Veteran", of Daly City who gave a "heartbreaking shot" in the midrange that closed the game to advance into the next stage.
Truly this game is one for the ages that will be in CityHoops archives.
GAME 4 : HAYWARD (58) VS SAN RAMON (38)
San Ramon crushed Tracy in a big margin! San Ramon fueled up with a win despite missing 2 players that includes their center "The Big Shy" Raffy Usac, It was a blow out win versus The big favorites Tracy who came up really short down the regulation game.
Tracy got snatched by San Ramon when they started to had turnovers in the late runs.
For Tracy what would be the next contingency plan for next season? Would they consider rebuilding or trading process? Despite losing, Tracy would be still a top Elite and contender for next Season 4! The question is how big.
The CityHoops Season 3 is on its Final Four stage this coming Sunday. Four (4) teams will face in a last leg Semis before going and reaching to the Finals!
