In a championship bout featuring the top two squads in the league, Team 40 oz edged past the Robe Trotters, 54-51, to win the Nevada County Adult Sports Association's inaugural 40-and-over basketball title.

Playing at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building, the No. 1 seed Team 40 oz used a balanced scoring attack to win the see-saw affair Wednesday.

Leading Team 40 oz was Josh Dwyer with 17 points. Dustin DeHart added 15 points and Koppa Enos chipped in 10 points in the win.

The No. 2 seed Robe Trotters were led on the offensive end by Larry Messer with 15 points and Doug Mickel with eight points.

Team 40 oz earned their spot in the title game after knocking off Mid-Life Crisis, 47-42, in the semifinals. The Robe Trotters topped Disco Inferno, 36-27, in the semifinals to reach the championship game.

Registration for NCASA's spring sports is currently open.
