Chargers bounce into playoffs

A little luck was all the extra help the Camosun Chargers women’s basketball team needed to secure a playoff spot, and they got it.

The Chargers kept their playoff dreams alive on Saturday with a 99-47 drubbing of the Columbia Bible College Bearcats at the Pacific Institute of Sports Excellence. Third-year wing Elyse Matthews (Stelly’s) led the Chargers with 20 points.

The Chargers were in danger of missing the playoffs, however, having lost to the Kwantlen Eagles 61-47 on Friday. But the Chargers held on to the final playoff spot when Quest defeated Langara on Saturday.

The Chargers men’s team squeaked into the playoffs in a similar style. Wing Drake Downer led the men team with 19 points and eight rebounds as they qualfied for provincials with a 92-65 win over the Bearcats on Saturday.

Camosun hosts the men’s and women’s 2013 PacWest playoffs at PISE, Feb. 28 to March 2.
