The DVSS Ju­nior A Girls Dynos bas­ket­ball team faced some tough com­pe­ti­tion at their home tour­na­ment over the week­end.

The Dynos in­vited seven teams to a tour­na­ment last Fri­day and Satur­day and they played well.

On Fri­day night, the Dynos faced Wheat­land Cross­ing. They were able to de­feat the Coy­otes in a high scor­ing 5720 game.

This put them in the semi­fi­nal to face a tough JC Charyk of Hanna. They lost a close game, 24-20.

That put them in the third place match where they faced Prairie Chris­tian Academy in an­other close game, but fell 31-28.

Coach Jeff Mes­som said his team worked hard on the court.

“The girls played hard on the week­end, but we did not ex­e­cute well at times on the de­fen­sive end of the floor, and the of­fen­sive end, which ended up cost­ing us both games on Satur­day against two good teams,” said Mes­som.

As with bas­ket­ball some­times the shots just don’t fall.

“Some of our key shoot­ers hit a shoot­ing slump on Satur­day, they had some good looks at the rim in both games, but the ball just was not fall­ing for them,” said Mes­som.

The Ju­nior A Girls Dynos will be back on the court on Fe­bru­ary 9 to take on Three Hills on the road.
