The St. An­thony’s Sabres ju­nior var­sity boy’s bas­ket­ball team ended their sea­son with a win at their home tour­ney.

The Sabres hosted a mini tour­na­ment last Fri­day at St. An­thony’s School. The team topped Banff and then Duchess to win the tour­na­ment.

Coach Joey Brown­ing en­joyed his team’s per­for­mance.

The games cer­tainly weren’t blowouts. In fact, the Sabres trailed Banff for most of their first game un­til they came alive in the fourth quar­ter to take a com­mand­ing lead.

Jhett Dou­glass was named game MVP ver­sus Banff.

Ver­sus Duchess, they stum­bled out.

“It was a sloppy start but we ended up win­ning so that was a good way to end the year,” he said. Ri­ley Gaudet, who kept the team alive of­fen­sively, was named game MVP ver­sus Duchess.

Brown­ing took over the team mid­way through the sea­son, and was im­pressed by the progress they made.

“They de­vel­oped a lot quicker than I ex­pected ac­tu­ally,” he said. “Our big guys came a long way, they all stepped up,” he said.

The Ju­nior Var­sity girls team also com­peted at the tour­na­ment. The Sabres won their first game ver­sus Banff 31-14, but fell to Medicine Hat High with a score of 58-29.

“They’re re­ally good. They are a 4A school,” said Makse. “I was happy we beat Banff. I knew we would have to play our best game. I told the girls when you play bet­ter teams like this you are go­ing to im­prove. It’s a good chal­lenge for us.”

This week the girls play Corona­tion on this com­ing Fri­day, and then host Zones on March 11 and 12. There are six teams com­pet­ing.

The Ju­nior Var­sity boys sabres ended their sea­son with a home tour­na­ment win, while the girls team is host­ing zones on march 11 and 12.
