THUNDER 36, CAGERS 34

The Thunder opened the Wine Country Basketball Tournament with a match-up against the host team, the Cagers and it proved to be an exciting match-up. Perhaps it was the long drive, but the Thunder started slow, going scoreless over the first eight minutes before re-establishing a good flow and took a 16-13 halftime lead. The second half was back and forth, but the Thunder led 34-31 with 10 seconds remaining. The Cagers battled back though and banked in a three to tie the score with 7 seconds left. That set up a dramatic finish. After a timeout, Richard Pabalate brought the ball up the court and drilled a game winner from the top of the key to secure a 36-34 victory for the Thunder. Pabalate would pace all Thunder players with 20 points, while Ramon Barragan, Akskay Aravindan, and Koby Silva each chipped in 4. An exciting start to the day!
