Fly High leads Rocball Final Four cast

By Roselyn Monroyo
Reporter Saipan Tribune

Fly High and three others made it to the semifinals of the 2011 Rocball High School Spring League after last week's games at the Marianas High School Gymnasium.

Fly High clinched the first semis ticket after a 48-34 victory over Watch Ur Face last Friday. The win was fifth in as many games for Fly High, while Watch Ur Face bowed out of the competition with a dismal 1-4 record in the round-robin regular season

Ryan Ichihara led Fly High's sweep with his 11 points off two kees, one xunk, one ace, and one goal.

Joining Fly High in the semifinals were Kingz, Krowners, and the Chiefs.

The Kingz also played last Friday and juiced out Krowners in three sets, 33-26. The victory put the Kingz in second place in the team standings with its 4-1 slate.

Despite the loss, Krowners still advanced to the next round, as their 3-2 record was enough for a share of third place with the Chiefs. Jason Limes led Kingz' winning cause with his nine points off two aces, one kee, and one goal.

The Chiefs saved their season after surviving the Underdogs, 32-31. The Chiefs lost the first two sets, 15-14, 15-8, to fall behind, 22-30. In the third set, the Chiefs must win by nine point to steal the game and they succeeded, 10-1, to foil the Underdogs' upset bid.

In Rocball, a win can only be awarded to the team that prevails in the last set and has the lead. If the leading team loses the last set, the game goes in overtime with the trailing squad needing to win two sets and the former prevailing in only one set.

With the win, the Chiefs were given the No. 3 seeding in the semifinals and are scheduled to play the second-ranked Kingz in Game 1 of their best-of-three series today. The other semis pairing are No. 1 seed Fly High and fourth-ranked Krowners, who played Game 1 of their own semis series yesterday. Winners of the semifinals series will advance to the best-of-five title affair.
