For a while, it looked like BeeGraphix's 15-game winning streak in the J. Budd Grebb Memorial Summer Basketball League was coming to an end.

Dairy Queen tied the game in the second half, 37-37, on a three-pointer by Matt Indorante and later took a 42-39 lead with 6:35 to play on a trey by Zachary Lloyd.

At that point, BeeGraphix's 6-9 Elijah Minnie had scored just two points.

But Minnie went off the rest of the way, scoring 12 points, and BeeGraphix forced numerous turnovers as the defending champs outscored DQ 31-9 down the stretch to come away with a 70-51 win.

Noah Rullo led BeeGraphix (4-0) with 16 points, while Minnie (14) and Luke Doptis (10) also hit double figures.

DQ (2-2) got a game-high 22 points from Ryan Novotney and 10 from Indorante.

Farmers Insurance 67,Union Cleaners 60

Farmers Insurance (3-1) moved into sole possession of second place with the win with its third consecutive victory.

Lavelle Rush scored 20 points, Noah Brown had 16 and Matt Bernadowski added 11 for the winners, who took a commanding 41-26 lead into halftime.

Rush and Brown scored 12 points each in the first half.

Union Cleaners (0-4) got 18 points from Jalen French, 11 from Tyler Yuille and 10 from Josh Sidary.

Campy's Pizza 82, Northwood Realty 68

Dominick Sarra scored 14 of his game-high 21 points in the second half as Campy's (2-2) pulled away for the win.

The score was tied 39-39 at halftime before Sarra and Campy's got hot.

Backing Sarra in double figures for Campy's were George Prota with 16 points and Austin Matta with 14.

Northwood Realty (1-3) was led by Cole Novotney with 20 points, 11 in the second half. Kass Taylor added 13 and Javon Brown had 11, nine in the second half.

NOTES: In the supplemental player draft held before the tripleheader, two players were selected. Union Cleaners picked Bentworth junior Dustin Carpenter and Campy's selected Elizabeth Forward senior Austin Matta ... The league will take the rest of the week off for the July 4 holiday, but action starts Monday with the girls' division making its debut with a doubleheader. Games are scheduled for 7 and 8 p.m.
