Game Scores & Details From
Monday, 2/5/01--(Feb. 6, 2001)

As we head into the last week of the season, only a few games were played on Monday, but for some, these were crucial, critical games.    Notre Dame picked up a much needed win over Crespi to secure at least a share of first in Mission League;  Buckley picked up the win over Providence and secured itself a share of the Liberty League.  Thousand Oaks picked up a big win to stay out in front in the Marmonte League.  Redondo Union managed to get a share of revenge and a tie with Inglewood for the league title in Bay League with a big win on Monday.   Bishop Montgomery confirmed what everyone has known since the beginning of the season, i.e., that they are the best team in their league, and likely again to win the division.  And Mayfair barely squeaked out a win, almost suffering from deja vu' to Artesia. 

Here's what happened on Monday, February 6, 2001.  As always, if we've missed a score or the details, let us know, either by e-mail or by posting it on the board.
