Trailing by as much as 24 points, the Harmoon Loop Dental Phoenix Sons managed to turn up scoring in the second half to beat the Southern 40+ squad 102-89.

Southern got hot from down town in the 1st half with 26 first half points coming by way of Joe Stevens to put the Sons in jeopardy with Southern leading 50-33 at the half. Son’s William Stinnett and Julius Yu managed to string their own hot streak from deep after a flurry of shots from both sharpshooters gave the Sons their first lead of the game at 79-76.

The shot from Stinnett on the wing to give the Sons the lead forced the games firs timeout as both squads were playing iron-man style; no subs. Stevens shot a perfect 3-of-3 in the second half before he started to cool down, but still ended with a game-high 34 points.

Stinnett’s 10 three pointers and Yu’s 11 from deep proved too strong to overcome as Stinnett finished with a game-high 37 points to Yu’s 36.
