Web Lead

The Prince Charles Secondary School boys basketball team was victorious at its season opening tournament at South Slocan’s Mount Sentinel on Friday and Saturday.

Creston opened against Nakusp and it was a nail biter up until the final two minutes. Nakusp was down by 11 but clawed their way back to within four points. Two key players on Nakusp got into foul trouble and Creston went on to win 59-44. Jordin Czar led the scoring with 25 points, and Leo Evans followed with 14 and Makaiah Gorham with 8.

In the semi-finals, Creston played Fernie. The game was close at halftime but with great defence from Evans and Jamond Dortman and an offensive explosion of 40 points by Czar, Creston took the game 72-57 and clinched their spot in the final against Kimberley. Evans and Dortman added 14 and 13 points, respectively.

In the final, the Creston team played flawless defense the first half holding the Kimberley team to only 10 points and scoring 34. Czar had another strong game with 22 points but the story was the strong defence of the entire team lead by Evans with 15 steals, 10 rebounds and eight points and Dortman with six steals and 14 points. The final score was 58-32.

The boys are off for Christmas break but head to Nelson Jan. 8 and 9.
