Jr. boys win consolation!
A very successful weekend for the Junior Men Cobras at home in the 2nd Annual Gord Ivey Invitational Tournament.
In their first game, the boys played the Hythe Mustangs. In a back and forth affair in front of the entire school, the teams were tied with less than two minutes left in the game before a couple of quick baskets by the Mustangs allowed them to win the game 34-30.
In their second game, the opponent was the TA Norris Timberwolves. In a game which saw all of the boy...s play significant minutes, the Cobras easily won 57-32.
This put them in the consolation final against the Worsley Wildcats, who the Cobras have played twice before in close games. In one of the most exciting games of the tournament, the two teams battled to a tie at the end of regulation and at the end of the first overtime period. On the strength of a couple of made last second free throws by Sheldon Guy in the second overtime period, the Cobras prevailed 55-53.
Great Job this weekend.
