Some Big Red rivalry has taken place on Sunday the 25th at Joe Dumars field house in the 11th-12 grade league. Both basketball teams consisted of players from Chippewa, the CTP Bucketsquad and the Rivergate RiverRats. Ironically, both teams had won their way through playoffs and met up in the Championship, making the competitive level even greater. There is always bound to be tough competition when you have two teams that are very close with each other and see each other in school every day.

Rivergate RiverRats has been together for two years and has more team chemistry, while the CTP Bucketsquad is a new team as of this year. Both teams had decided to create a team for some good Sunday fun and competition with their friends on the court.

The CTP Bucketsquad fired up and beat the RiverRats by ten with a final score of 52-42. Leading scorers on the championship side were Josh Pulford with 16 points, Andrew Severini 14 points and 16 rebounds, Peyton Mize 10 points, and Zay Buf with an outstanding 4 blocks! Rivergate Riverats had beaten the Bucketsquad earlier in the season due to Jacob rybicki making a buzzer beater three pointer, causing it to be a tough loss for the Bucketsquad. This really sparked up boys coming into the championship.

Although it may had been tough, both teams had shown good sportsmanship during and after the game.  “We had a lot of fun putting on a show for you guys every Sunday and you guys showing love. Congrats to a talented team on winning the championship, sadly this was our last basketball game ever.” Rivergate RiverRats twitter account had tweeted. At the end of the day, they are both still Big Reds! Unfortunately, both of the teams careers have came to an end and will no longer be joining the Joe Dumars league next year.
