It was a tale of two for­tunes as the Ju­nior B boys and girls St. An­thony’s Saints hosted their an­nual home tour­na­ment.

On Fri­day night, De­cem­ber 16, the Ju­nior B boys hosted Wheat­land Cross­ing, Duchess and a team from Air­drie in the round robin tour­na­ment. The Saints opened the tour­na­ment play­ing Wheat­land Cross­ing and made short work of the team win­ning, 42-13. In their next game, they took on Duchess and won 28-14. They wrapped up the tour­na­ment ver­sus Air­drie and won 4131, fin­ish­ing the tour­na­ment in first place and with a gold medal.

Coach Jay Mul­grew was im­pressed how his young team per­formed.

“They are re­ally com­ing to­gether and im­prov­ing in ev­ery game,” said Mul­grew.

The Ju­nior B girls Saints took to the court on Satur­day morn­ing and were strong out of the gate. Ver­sus Berry Creek, they bat­tled from be­hind to take the lead down the stretch, but de­fen­sive break­downs al­lowed Berry Creek to go up, fin­ish­ing the game 2221.

The Saints re­grouped to face Rose­mary, but were un­able to take the lead and fell 26-22.

They fin­ished the tour­na­ment ver­sus Air­drie, but their of­fense was stalled ver­sus the very Tall Air­drie team and they lost 22-9.

Berry Creek was un­de­feated in the tour­na­ment and took home the gold.
