Camsoin College Chargers basketball teams defeat lower mainland challengers

It was an up and down weekend for both the women’s and men’s Camosun Chargers basketball teams as they faced off against the Capilano Blues and the Quest University Canada Kermodes at home.

The local teams took a double win Friday against the North Vancouver-based Blues. The early evening women’s game saw the team pull off a tight 75-70 victory while the men managed to win their game by a hefty 30-point margin, 92-62.

Saturday the teams took to the court in the afternoon. This series saw both local squads fall to their Squamish  opponents. The men lost 84-67 while the women were defeated by a score of 70-60.

Both teams will be busy next weekend with away games.  Friday (Nov. 21), will see a visit to Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey for an evening match-up. They will then head up the valley to Abbotsford Saturday where the Chargers will be praying for a win over Columbia Bible College.

 

Victoria fans won’t get an opportunity to see the locals in action again until the new year when both the Chargers teams will see Island rivals, Vancouver Island University Mariners.
