High School Basketball Resumes


    After nearly a three week layoff for exams, the local high school basketball teams resumed action last week. The Leduc Senior girls returned to action when they traveled to the Memorial Composite Invitational Tournament, held on Jan. 31st and Feb. 1st, on an excellent note as they took the championship. 
    In their first round game they faced the Grand Trunk Grizzlies. With four minutes remaining Leduc held a seven-point lead when the Grizzlies attempted a full court press in an attempt to rattle the Tigers and gain the advantage, but it backfired as the girls from Leduc broke the press several times and sprinted to a 60 to 40 victory and into the semifinals.
    In the semifinal they faced a tough team in the St Joseph Ceinahs from Grande Prairie. The Ceinahs were able to match Leduc throughout the game and in the end it came down to some timely shooting as the Tigers were able to edge St. Joseph 51 to 48 and gained their ticket to the tournament’s championship game.
    This time they faced a familiar foe in the Ardrossan Bison. Both teams play in the Metro League and in the same pool. The Bison team is young and rapidly improving and played well to advance to the final, The Tigers were waiting and it didn’t take long for them to establish that they were not about to be stampeded as they quickly established their quickness and roared to a 64 to 33 victory and the championship.
    In league play, all four of Leduc Composite teams are playing well. With the Leduc Junior boys showing a lot of promise leading their Pool after six games with a perfect 6 and 0 record. On Wednesday Feb 5th they defeated McNally 73 to 55 to remain on top of their division. Meanwhile the Leduc Junior girls are in a tie for third in the Metro’s top junior girls division with 5 wins and 1 lost record. On Feb 5th they defeated Archbishop O’Leary 45 to 26.
    The Leduc’s Senior Boys had an opportunity to gain a tie for first place in league play when they hosted the Holy Trinity Trojans on Monday, Feb 3rd. The league leading Trojans were pressed right to the last second, but were able to survive winning the game 80 to 79. With the loss, the Tigers dropped into a two way tie for fifth in their pool.
    Leduc’s senior girls also lost to Holy Trinity 66 to 53 on Monday, but bounced back the following day when they defeated McNally 60 to 52. Their 2 win 1 lost record in league play is good enough for a tie with Eastglen in their eight-team pool.
    Meanwhile the Christ the King (CTK) girls did not get back into action until Tuesday, Feb 11th when they traveled to JH Picard. Their current record of 2 wins and 2 loses has them tied for 4th in the eight team 3rd division.
