Creston senior boys basketball team continues dominant run

Web Lead

The Prince Charles Secondary School Bulldogs continued their dominant run in the 2015-16 senior boys’ basketball season with a home tournament victory Feb. 6.

The Bulldogs swept both their games in the three-team, round-robin affair to finish first and run their season record to 10-1, with three titles in four tournaments.

Jacob Dumas netted 18 points in PCSS’s 61-44 victory over the Selkirk Storm of Kimberley, which ended the contest on an 11-0 run to make the score closer than indicated by the action.

Creston closed out the first half with a 13-0 run of its own to lead 38-15 at the break, and took a 55-28 advantage into the final quarter.

The Storm is one of two Kootenay rivals PCSS will have to get past in zone playoffs to qualify for the British Columbia AA championships.

In the other game, PCSS outscored the Mt. Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan 69-32, paced by the 22 points of Leo Evans plus 13 from Dumas, 10 from Jamond Dortman and eight from Marcus Bell.

The Bulldogs followed up that performance with a perfect weekend in Fernie on Feb. 12 and 13, when they won their fourth trophy and improved to 14-1 on the season.

They posted lopsided opening-day victories over Crowsnest Pass and Mt. Sentinel, then followed that up the next day with narrow victories over Sparwood (in the semifinals) and the host Fernie Falcons in the championship match.

PCSS is hosting the 2016 Kootenay zone senior boys’ playoffs Feb. 26 and 27. The Bulldogs will be seeking a berth in the AA provincials in Langley in the regional finals against Selkirk and Golden, a team they will not have seen before the playoffs.
