Basketball: Crush Sports Cafe wins Woznick title
Crush Sports Cafe defeated top-seeded Pop's Resturaunt, 47-42 in overtime, to capture the Ken Woznick Memorial Post Season Playoff Championship at the Parsons Complex on Thursday night.
Danny Powell poured in 19 points, all coming in the second half and overtime, to help Crush rally back from a 10-point second-half deficit and win its first Milford men's league championship.
Powell's driving layup was the only basket of the three-minute overtime but Powell and Tristian Shields combined to make 5-of-6 foul shots to secure the victory for second-seeded Crush.
Shields chipped in with 10 points, while Zach Davidson added eight and Matt Binder six.
For Pop's Restaurant, Matt Woods scored a team-high 13 points, Fred Payen added nine and Matt Mezick eight.
Pop's led 26-19 at the half — with Kumail Zar knocking down a 3-pointer from beyond NBA range at the buzzer. But, the second half was an offensive struggle for the regular-season champions as it made just three field goals over the next 23 minutes.
Woods sank a 3-pointer from the top of the key to give Pop's its largest lead of the game, 33-23, with 15:14 left in the second half. Binder answered with layup underneath and Payen's runner restored the 10-point edge with 13:20 remaining in regulation.
Pop's made just 9-of-19 foul shots in the second half and overtime, while Crush was 8-of-12.
