The girls started off very strong jumping out to an 18-2 lead and continued that strong play to the end ending with a 40-14 win. Player of the game was Sophia Tapley finishing with 18 points.
In the semi-finals, we played a much more experienced team in WA Fraser. The girls battled all game but in the end we took the loss by a score of 40-27 placing us in the bronze medal match on Saturday against Abby Middle. In the 3rd place match, we once again took control right from the beginning jumping to a 21-0 lead. We won the bronze with a 40-8 victory over Abby Middle. Player of the game was Kavita Basi finishing many fast break layups and ending with 17 points. Sophia Tapley was chosen as a 1st team all star for the tournament.
