Station Hill Cavaliers are on the mountaintop of lower division basketball in Barbados.

The Cavs led from tip-off to the final whistle to win the third game of the Barbados Amateur Basketball Association’s Division 2 championship finals series on Monday night, defeating Garrison Chargers 70-61 at the YMCA.

With the thrilling 2-1 series win, Station Hill added another piece of silverware to their already overflowing trophy case.

Kevin Robertson started hot for the Cavaliers, scoring seven of his team’s 15 points, which pushed them to a 25-13 first-quarter lead.

In essence, Station Hill won the game after that first period, as they were able to withstand every challenge from Chargers.

They led 38-28 at half-time, and were strong enough in the third quarter to lead 49-40 heading into the final stanza.

Chargers, to their credit, let it all hang out in the final period, increasing their defensive tempo to stop the Cavs on numerous occasions, whilst scoring 26 points in the period. But they ended up nine points short.

Stefan Ottley led Station Hill with 17 points, and got good support from Robertson, who scored 11. Adrian Yearwood, who scored two early three-pointers to set the Cavs off, ended with 12 points, and Ronald McDonald added 11.

For the Chargers, Cedric Proverbs was high-scorer with 17, while Junior Clarke added 13, and Tyrone Alexander 11. (BA)
