Donohue’s Kaos and Game Creek laced up their shoes one last time this season in game three of the final round, as Donohue’s Kaos won the Papas Elite Championship over Game Creek with a final score of 53-43 on Thursday, the Recreation Department announced.
At the beginning of the season it did not look too promising for Donohue’s Kaos going 1-4 from the start. It was questionable whether they would win more than one game, let alone a championship. The perennial contenders proved themselves with hard work and determination at
the half way mark of the season, as they climbed the ladder and came together as one to take home the title.
The game was never in doubt for Donohue’s Kaos as they lead early on in the game by 11 points at half time. Louis Dale lead the way for the winning team by earning himself a game high of 15 points. Former All-American at Rochester University Seth Hauben, and Harvard graduate Andrew Gellert tallied in 11 points each to help lead their team to victory.
Game Creek had their moments and never gave up until the final buzzer went off. Captain Rob Stockwell lead the way for his team scoring 10 points in the early going. Teammates Chris Baudinet and Nick Schmiemann added 9 points each to the final score with their aggressive plays from outside the key.
Although both teams had their smart offensive plays and strong defense, Donohue’s Kaos valued each possession and created numerous scoring opportunities for themselves. In the end, their
motivation and love for the game lead them straight to the win.
