Breakers beat no. 1 seed, fall to host

Oak Bay High senior girls finished second in AAA basketball provincials at the Langley Events Centre this weekend.

“The girls made an incredible run at B.C.’s,” said Coach Rob Kinnear. “They played their best ball of the year.”

The team scored victories over Argyle and Handsworth secondary schools before an exciting one-point comeback victory 67-66 over No. 1 seeded Holy Cross. The team dropped the final 64-57 to Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats.

“They played a great final, coming up just a bit short in the end,” Kinnear said. “All the girls made awesome contributions and as a group they truly battled right until the end.”

Holy Cross finished third.

Morgan Roskelley and Lauren Yearwood were named first team all-stars for the tournament. Marisa Harrington also earned an honourable mention as well as the Quinn Keast Foundation scholarshipand a Telus scholarship.
