Lambrick Park beats SMUS in AA boys final, Oak Bay girls win AAA silver after heroic semifinal comeback

In the battle for Saanich basketball supremacy, Lambrick Park Lions defeated St. Michael’s University School Blue Devils at the B.C. high school boys championships on Saturday.

The Lambrick senior boys beat SMUS 70-64 in the AA division final at the Langley Event Centre on Saturday.

Matt Neufeld (Lambrick) earned dual titles as both best defensive and most valuable player of the tournament.

Ishmael Abdulahi (Lambrick), Jason Scully (SMUS) and Calvin Somers (Lambrick) were named to the first all-star team. Graeme Hyde-Lay (SMUS) was named to the second team.

Also last weekend in Langley, Oak Bay’s senior Breakers girls posted a 67-66 upset of No. 2 Holy Cross in the AAA semifinals before losing 64-57 to the No.1-ranked Brookswood Bobcats of Langley.

Breakers star Lauren Yearwood was named most outstanding defensive player of the tournament and joined teammate Morgan Roskelley on the first all-star team.

Claremont’s senior girls finished 11th in the tournament.

The Island champion Oak Bay junior girls, initially barred from the provincials due to a clerical error, finished ninth overall in their tournament.

Claremont’s senior boys compete in the 4A boys provincial championships starting Wednesday (March 12) in Langley.
