USS Warriors beat West Van’s Mulgrave and Nanaimo’s Cedar

Special to Westerly News Ucluelet Secondary’s Senior Boys Basketball team traveled to Duncan this past weekend, finishing in 3rd place at the Duncan Christian Chargers Invitational Tournament.

Game one saw the Warriors up against Mulgrave from West Vancouver. A tight match ensued between these two teams with USS coming out on top 71-65. High scorers included William Tom with 20 points and Riley Botting with 25 points. Edwin Toochie popped in 11 points as well. Congrats to Riley for Player of the Game honors.

In the second game, the team came up against John Barsby

Secondary from Nanaimo. The Warriors fell to Barsby 58-52 after a hard fought game. William had 21 points, Riley 11 points and Leo Torres-Clark rounded out the scoring with 10 points.

The final game had USS against Cedar Secondary from Nanaimo. The team defeated Cedar 81-67. William completed the game with 29 pts. Riley had 20 points, 15 points for Leo, 11 points for Edwin, 4 for Mitch “Larry” Saunderson and 2 points each for Lyndon Clark and Wesley Frank. Reid “Buzzer Beater” Appenheimer attempt a last second shot, however the gravitational pull in the Duncan Christian gym was extra powerful and Reids shot fell well short. Well done Leo who was chosen as Player of the Game.
