Both club did not take their opponent lightly with neither team giving way. Balls were fought over on their ground, as well as in the air filling Speary Gym with a playoff atmosphere. As the clock started to run down Bogota's Jay Mahoney gave his started a well earned rest. He stopped coaching for a few moments and took the time to be their Coach for one more time.
