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.
