Last week’s Weekly Reader had the subject title Get That Championship Feeling. Little did I know then that we would actually crown 4 (not just 3) champions in 4 different sports this month!! Join me in congratulating our latest MUSA Champions!
First, Money Balls beat Sky Zone 50-47 in our St. Bernard’s basketball league. It was a very competitive and fun championship to watch on Sunday. Before the final game tip-off, we crowned our first ever 3-point contest winner, Paul Keller from the Young Bucks.
The MUSA United Futsal team took home championship glory as they defeated a young and inexperienced Underdogs team 10-3 in the In-Bounds Training Futsal league championship game. Leading only 5-3 at half, the United crew were able to shutout the Underdogs in the 2nd half and take the League ‘B’ title.
Learn more about other upcoming championships and how to get in on the action below. This month ain’t over until we set the stage for the Golden Lunchbox Tournament and survive the Dodge of the Dead dodgeball tournament at Sky Zone.
Haunted Lunchbox Treats

Hibernation mode can start on Sunday.
Money in the Bank
Money Balls takes the 2014 MUSA Fall basketball league going a perfect 8-0 on the season and beating Sky Zone 50-47 in an entertaining championship game. Even though both teams shooting percentage was in the 30’s, it was still an action packed game to watch. Money Balls got out to a small lead early, but could never bring it to where they felt comfortable. Each time they’d make a run, Sky Zone would make a run of their own keeping the score close throughout the game. With seconds winding down and trailing by 3, Sky Zone tried calling a timeout to set up their final play with 7 seconds left on the clock. Unfortunately, Sky Zone didn’t have a timeout left and the officials called for the technical foul thus giving Money Balls the win with a 5 point lead and the ball.
After some discussion, Money Balls decides they don’t want to win like this and allows the timeout to be granted giving Sky Zone another shot. A wonderful show of sportsmanship pays off as their defense held Sky Zone to an off balance 3-point attempt that clanked off the rim and earned Money Balls the Fall Basketball Championship.
Before we crowned a basketball champion, we wanted to see who was the best 3-point shooter in the league. We invited any and all willing to take the challenge and a shot at $50. Five brave souls stepped forward willing to give it a shot, but it was Paul Keller from the Young Bucks team beating Dan Kopp and Max Monday in the final round to take home MUSA basketball glory as well as $50 for his pocket. Congrats Paul and thanks to all the shooters that participated in our first 3-point contest.
See you at the gym.

The MUSA United crew took home the 2014 Fall session championship at In-Bounds Training last night beating the Underdogs 10-3. The last time these two teams met, MUSA gave up a late game lead that ended in a tie, but this time the Red Army made sure there was no comeback from the young and fiesty Underdog squad. Stay tuned for more on the boys in red as they take to the court in the next session to defend their title.
