The Braves beat an improving Caston team to advance to the finals against Peru.The Braves improve to 6-2 on the season. The Championship game will be at around 8pm tonight.

Coach Burrus Quotes: “We had to get back to playing again. It took a while to get going.I thought we played better as the game went on. We also won every quarter. Our defense forced 26 turnovers which was a key in this game. I would like to give Caston credit. They made us work to score. They were prepared for us. This was a good game for us to get into tournament play, advance, and be ready for the championship tonight.

The game tonight offers a different challenge. We are playing Peru at home. Peru is very good again this year and always tough at home. This championship game should be an exciting game.”
