The G-Rollers camp was pretty successful last week in the ongoing Island-wide Village Youth Basketball League, posting respectable victories, with the G-Rollers II beating the Garapan Local Boyz on Wednesday and the G-Rollers I routing the Capitol Hill Blaze on Thursday.

The G-Rollers II, in their season-debut, ran on all cylinders in the second and third quarters to build a comfortable lead that managed to hold despite an electrifying charge by the Local Boyz in the fourth for a 41-36 win at the Garapan Court.

After an even first quarter, 8-8, the coach Joe Diaz and his G-Rollers II gained advantage with a 14-6 run in the second eight-minute period to head into halftime with a 22-14 lead.

The lead ballooned to 15 points courtesy of another spirited balanced attack in the third that limited the Local Boyz to a measly 4 points. For their part, the G-Rollers II combined to knock in 11 points for a 33-18 cushion with one period remaining to be played.

The Local Boyz, however, weren't ready to throw in the towel and put up a desperate push only to fall a little short in the end.

Kyle Concepcion, Ricardo Basilla, Alvander Pua, and Xing You Dong each had 6 points to lead the G-Rollers II, while Denri Fiden paced the Local Boyz with a game-high 12 points.

As for the G-Rollers I, they bagged their second win in as many chances with a 61-32 trouncing of the Blaze last Thursday.

The G-Rollers I held a slim 25-22 lead at the break, but kicked it into high gear and outscored the Blaze, 36-10, in the second half for the final score.

Joemar Tumaquip pumped in 8 points, while Keoive Chariton, Kevin Aldan, Mat Iguel, and Daniel Lizama added 6 points to lead the victors.

Eugene Dillay had 8 points for the Blaze.
