Hard hoop lessons

Lo­cal teams go 1-8 at girls’ pro­vin­cial tour­na­ment

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

A trio of lo­cal schools bat­tled hard at the 2011 New­found­land and Labrador Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion East Coast Grade 9 girls’ C tour­na­ment at Bal­ti­more High in Fer­ry­land from April 1-3. But wins were hard to come by.

Per­salvic School was the lone team to post a vic­tory, barely de­feat­ing Bay Robert’s Amal­ga­mated Academy 2322 in an ex­tremely close con­test.

The school from Vic­to­ria lost 55-22 in its first game against the host school, and posted its sec­ond loss of the tour­na­ment in its fi­nal game, a 66-30 de­feat at the hands of Clarenville High.

St. Fran­cis ofHar­bour Grace­came close to earn­ing two wins, los­ing by two points in a pair of games — a 29-27 loss to Laval High from Pla­cen­tia and a 31-29 loss to St. Lawrence. In the school’s only other game, Mo­bile Cen­tral High beat St. Fran­cis 54-14.

In Amal­ga­mated’s other two games, the school lost 4120 to Clarenville and 48-31 to Bal­ti­more High.

Mo­bile went on to de­feat Bal­ti­more by 10 points in the cham­pi­onship game on April 3.
