The children gave Bameso the final push

When the goal of winning the first championship title in ten years moved away from Bameso, its players received an unexpected push from the club’s minibasketball team minutes before going out on the court to play the fourth game of the tournament’s final series against Mauricio Báez. of Superior Basketball of the National District.

The children, dressed in the traditional green uniform of the representative of the Social Improvement District, visited them in the dressing room of the Palacio de los Deportes Virgilio Travieso Soto.

Once there, Jamel Aquino, a slight 10-year-old point guard, approached coach Yoel Feliz to ask if he would allow him to speak to the players.

“I want to say something. We know it’s difficult, but you have to win for our neighborhood, for us,” Aquino told them at a time when the Mauritians led the final 2-1.

“You are superheroes for us and we know you are going to win, but no matter what happens, I want you to know that you are our family,” he stressed, before leading a parade to greet Víctor Liz, Miguel Dicent, Fausto Pichardo, Edward Santana, Trashon Burrell and other supporting actors who listened intently without speaking.

They did it on the field, where they overwhelmed the Mauritians 82-64, equaling the series agreed to the best in seven matches at two.

“That’s where the series changed,” emphasizes José Augusto Castro, an influential director of Bameso at the Café Deportivo of LISTÍN DIARIO, in which he was accompanied by former player Renzo Vargas, president of the Basketball Commission of the sports entity.

“It was very emotional,” Vargas said.

The next match, Bameso continued with the push, prevailing 90-83 and placed less than a meter from glory, but in the sixth game Mauricio won and extended the final to the maximum after triumphing 82-70.

The Bamesians recovered and came out with all the determination and triumphed 81-66 to reissue the champion trophy that they had won in the 2011 and 2012 editions.

Castro considers that the motivation of the children was one of the causes that influenced the club to be crowned champion.

As a second factor, he cites the words of encouragement he received from Vargas in the stands when Bameso qualified for the last stage of the tournament, but the economic situation threatened the team.

“Don’t worry… we’re going to keep going,” recalls the producer of the specialized radio program “Cancha Entera.”

a special flavor

This third Bamesian scepter has been very comforting, since they not only won it over the favorite, but also against Julio César Javier (Ayata), who had a tacit agreement as team coach, but left it up in the air without any explanation.

Does this title have a special flavor? José Augusto Castro was asked briefly and directly, who answered with all sincerity with a “yes”.

Castro clarified that it is not about anything personal, but about the one thrown by a tough competition against the only club that has a defined basketball project in the country.

Vargas added that an intangible that served as motivation for Bameso was the reaction of some Mauricio Báez players, who after winning the first game of the series with a score of 88-80, hinted that they would sweep the series in four games.
