Vision, Bulldogs to meet in championship
Saturday saw two games with two much different paths to the Midwest Basketball League championship game. By the end of the night Eagan Bulldogs (16-4) and Fort Wayne Vision (15-2) booked their spot in the final.
In the first semifinal game Eagan had little trouble getting past Dallas Kings, the champions of MBL South. The Bulldogs took an early 19-4 advantage and ran away with the win 107-71.
The host team had a much more difficult time of it with the two-time MBL champion Cedar Valley CourtKings in their way. The visitors jumped on Fort Wayne early leading 34-15 after one quarter. That advantage would grow to 22-points at one time before halftime when the scoreboard read 56-38.
Early on in the third the Vision began their comeback. Outscoring Cedar Valley 25-11 in the quarter Fort Wayne made it a five-point game going into the final frame. The teams battled back-and-forth with the lead changing hands a few times in the final minutes, but it was the Vision who were victorious in the end 92-89.
