Micos Liquor Warriors top PRSAA basketball tourney

LEDUC, Alberta — Micos Liquor Store-Leduc Warriors waxed hot building an 18-0 lead at the start of the canto then slowed down in the next three quarters that made the game more exciting for the fans and players but pulled away to beat the Good Squad, 96-86 in the 2018 PRSAA Basketball Finals, recently, here.

Season MVP Ian Gonzales powered Micos with 33 points, that included seven three-pointers, to keep Good Squad at bay.

Micos Warriors defeated Adessa in the semifinal game in the morning and despite the fatigue, the squad of team captain Alexis Dimaculangan fought off a younger and faster Good Squad later in the afternoon.

“We have been playing together for the last five seasons and we found the chemistry after all those years,” said Dimaculangan.

Taking advantage of playing for a good number of years and with the coming in of veteran center Warren Guillen this season, Micos Warriors took charge of the game despite the relentless attack by the Good Squad.

Named to the mythical five were Gonzales and Guillen, Chris Antonio and Rio Hernandez of Goon Squad, Slim Montero of Adessa.

John Israel of Micos was named final game MVP.
