It was a basketball chess match. The moves and counter moves evolved slowly over time, sometimes percolating almost painfully before exploding in bits and spurts of offensive maneuvering.
It was point, counterpoint, with tactics and initiatives employed by both sides. And, little space separated the combatants, the match demanding an added period before a winner emerged. Checkmate arrived when the final horn sounded and the visiting RCS Rockets prevailed, edging the Lady Blue Devils of Margaretville last Friday, 28-27, in overtime.
