The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - SPORTS - SUN TIMES STAFF

It was a good run, but the win­less Geor­gian Bay Thun­der lost 33-22 to the St. Mary’s Mus­tangs in Blue­wa­ter Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion se­nior girls bas­ket­ball ac­tion on Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

The de­feat re­sults in the Thun­der’s record fall­ing to 0-4 on the year while the Mus­tangs im­prove to 3-1 - their only loss com­ing at the hands of the un­de­feated Owen Sound District Wolves in the sea­son opener.

The Mus­tangs trav­elled east on Thurs­day to the Geor­gian Bay Com­mu­nity School in Meaford and jumped out to an early lead. A three-point bucket by the Thun­der in the first quar­ter sig­nalled the home team wasn’t go­ing away qui­etly.

Ear­lier in the week the Mus­tangs limited the Penin­sula Shores Phoenix to only four points, and held the Thun­der to their low­est to­tal of the sea­son on Thurs­day.

The Thun­der and Mus­tangs will go head-to-head again in Owen Sound on Oc­to­ber 30.

Else­where in the se­nior girls bas­ket­ball cir­cuit the 4-0 Wolves stayed hot against the Grey High­lands Lions (1-2) with a 39-28 vic­tory on Wed­nes­day.

In the South Di­vi­sion, the Kin­car­dine Knights (3-1) and Walk­er­ton River­hawks (3-1) both picked up wins. The Knights beat the Sa­cred Heart Cru­saders 29-11 and the River­hawks topped the Saugeen Roy­als 37-22.

Both teams bounced back af­ter record­ing their first de­feats of the sea­son a week prior.

The River­hawks are the BAA’s top of­fen­sive team. They’ve scored 162 points in four games.

OSDSS is the best squad at keep­ing the bas­ket­ball out of the bucket. The Wolves have held teams to only 70 points so far across four games this sea­son.

The Wolves can run up the score too, they’ve scored 151 points over four con­tests.

The River­hawks and Wolves are mid-sea­son di­vi­sion lead­ers.
