“ We wanted to get the ball down low and use our size ad­van­tage, but they did a pretty good job dou­bling our big men and we didn’t hit out­side shots like we had been through­out the tour­na­ment,” said Raiders co-coach Ryan Keli­her, a for­mer mem­ber of the Cape Bre­ton Uni­ver­sity Capers men’s bas­ket­ball team.

“I’m def­i­nitely proud of the guys. They wanted to win and they weren’t go­ing to give up. They showed a lot of char­ac­ter to fight back, but we just came up a lit­tle short.”

MacDon­ald net­ted 16 points as well for the Vik­ings, while Mor­gan MacDon­ald scored 12. The Raiders replied with 19 points from Ja­cob Sim­mons, 16 by Aaron Rob­bins and 12 from Kyle Gil­lis.

The Raiders got a scare near the end of the game. Point guard Sean Se­viour went down hard while go­ing to the hoop and in­jured his back. He was con­scious when taken away by stretcher to the am­bu­lance.
