It was a rematch of one of the frequent matchups in Big Parkway East history, as DG, formerly Cornerstone, and AC met once again in the championship. DG dominated the early going and lead much of the game. AC then rallied and took control of the game. It was an intense game, just like all the other meetings between the two teams. Damian Davenport won the MVP for the game because he scored his 13 points in the late part of the game when DG attempted to rally. Congratulations to both Lew McCracken and his team and Joe Oliver and his squad for getting to the championship.
