South Fork got the better of Hoopa in boys basketball for the second time in four days on Monday night to set up a championship deciding showdown later in the week.

Oliver Tatton scored a team-high 22 points in the win, which lifted the Cubs to 4-1 in the Little 4 and back into sole possession of top spot in the standings.

St. Bernard’s is 3-1 and also in the mix for a conference title and can rejoin the Cubs at the top of the standings with a victory at home to Hoopa on Tuesday night.

The Crusaders will then travel to South Fork to close out league play on Friday night.

The Cubs took control of Monday’s game with a big second-quarter run and never looked back.

Shevy Bero continued to impress in the win and scored 11 points, while John Harding had a good night at both ends of the court and finished with nine points.

Kobe Gellman also had a good night defensively in the win, as the Cubs improved to 10-2 overall.

Hoopa dropped to 1-2 in the Little 4 and 2-10 overall.
