Jivaro moves closer
to cage title

Alpine Masonry advances, too

High-scoring Jivaro (Division 1) and Cinderella squad Alpine Masonry (Division 2) have moved into the championship games of 2003 Sutton & Sons Men’s Basketball League’s city tournament.

#2-seeded Jivaro (13-1), averaging 84.1 ppg, unleashed its artillery and used its depth Sunday to dismantle #1 Croy St. Exchange (11-2) by a score of 80-69 at Wood River Middle School gym.

Dom Conti (17 points) led six Jivaro scorers in double figures on the Hailey floor. Austin Tyler added 14 points, Matt Brinker 14, Matt Palmer 11, Mike Payne 11 and Dan Willett 10 for Jivaro (91.3 ppg tourney).

For Croy St., Fernando Murga finished with 17 points including five 3-pointers in the second half. Tim Richards chipped in with 17 points for Croy St., which lost leading scorer Evan Lillevand (10 points) to a muscle pull early in the contest.

Meanwhile, #12 Alpine Masonry (2-11) took charge of the Division 2 tourney with a 49-39 win over #8 Power Engineers (6-8). Kyle Broadie (17 points) led the way for Alpine.
