Leduc Juniors on a Roll

The Leduc Composite Junior Basketball teams continue to roll with the boys leading the way. With back-to-back wins on Monday, Feb. 10th and Wednesday, Feb. 12th the team increased their Pool leading advantage to two games. On Monday they traveled to Sherwood Park and faced second place Strathcona Christian. The Jr Tigers were able to edge the Eagles 54 to 48. Then on Wednesday Archbishop Jordon came to town and left disappointed falling 64 to 50. The Tigers remain undefeated in league play with an 8 win 0 lost record.
    The Jr Tiger girls’ team split their two games last week winning on Feb 11th 46 to 34 over Salisbury and then had to come back the very next day and traveled to Strathcona to face league-leading Lords and lost 70 to 61. Leduc’s 6 win 2 lost record in Division One of the Metro Association places them just one game out of first place.
    In Senior play the Leduc Comp Boys spilt their two games last week. The trip to Sherwood Park on Tuesday, Feb 11th saw the Tigers losing to the Archbishop Jordon Scots 82 to 71 but they bounced back on Thursday, Feb 13th trouncing the Ardrossan Bison 91 to 50 on their home court. With the victory the team improved their record to 3 wins and 3 losses. They are tied for fourth in the league and are only one and a half games out of second.
    The Leduc Senior Girls, after winning both their games last week, are in a three-way tie for first place in their pool. The Tigers traveled to Archbishop O’Brien on Tuesday, Feb 11th and edged the Crusaders 53 to 50. Two days later the team had a rematch against the Ardrossan Bison. They had played in the Memorial tournament just a week ago and Leduc had run away with the game. The Bison showed improvement but in the second half the tough full court Tiger defense wore them down. Leading 40 to 26 going into the fourth quarter the Tigers increased their intensity and were able to shut the Bison down completely and won going away 57 to 26.
    Meanwhile the Christ the King (CTK) girls are battling in Division Three play. The girls spilt their two games last week.

The game started with the Chargers taking a 10 to 6 lead after 10 minutes and by halftime had increased their advantage to 20 to 11. Things didn’t get any better for the Olympians in the second half as CTK’s defense held Old Scona to two baskets in the third quarter and improved their advantage to 30 to 15. The Olympians outscored the Chargers in the last quarter 9 to 7 but it was not nearly enough as CTK won the game 37 to 24 and improved to a 3 won 3 lost record. This places them in a three tie for fourth in Division Three, one game back of second place.
