Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate earns an­other hoops ban­ner

The Compass - - SPORTS - Editor@CBN­com­pass.ca

The Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate Lady Sen­tinels bas­ket­ball team con­tin­ued their win­ning ways this month.

The fe­male team cap­tured the cham­pi­onship of the se­cond an­nual Valen­tine’s Day Clas­sic hosted by Prince of Wales Col­le­giate in St. John’s Feb. 12-14.

Car­bon­ear put to­gether a com­plete team ef­fort in the gold medal match as they glided to an 82-65 vic­tory over the host Cava­liers.

The vic­tory meant the Sen­tinels ex­acted a sliver of re­venge against PWC for an ear­lier loss that week­end.

That came in the tour­na­ment opener for both teams. The Cava­liers squeaked out a 56-53 vic­tory in that one.

The Sen­tinels got back to their win­ning ways with a 66-52 win over the Celtics club team. Their vic­tory plus a Celtics vic­tory over PWC re­sulted in a three­way tie for first place in their divi­sion. When the dust had set­tled, Car­bon­ear found them­selves in on top and await­ing the win­ner of the Celtics-Cor­ner Brook Re­gional High win­ner.

In the semi­fi­nals, Car­bon­ear again bested Celtics, this time by an eight-point mar­gin, 59-51.

Next for the Sen­tinels will be AAAA Tier II re­gional play­downs with As­cen­sion Col­le­giate from Bay Roberts. Then, they’ll be host­ing the AAAA Tier II pro­vin­cial tour­na­ment March 11-13. It’s a tour­na­ment they’ve won the past two sea­sons.
