Basketball Playoffs Begin

The Leduc Composite Senior Girls basketball team ended their league schedule on a winning note when they hosted W.P. Wagner on Thursday, February 20th. The Warriors were not able to solve the tough Tiger defense and at the same time could not hold off the Tiger offense as they fell 62 to 50. This victory ensured Leduc of a fourth place standing in their Pool and awarded them the hosting of the first round playoff game against Lillian Osborne Legends. The Legends finished fifth in Pool B. The two teams were scheduled to play each other in an exhibition game earlier in the season, but it was cancelled. The game was held on Tuesday, February 25th with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals against undefeated St. Joseph on Tuesday, March 4th.  
    Meanwhile the Christ the King (CTK) girls team fell to the Beaumont Bandits 50 to 34 on Thursday, February 20th and the lost dumped them to a six place finish in league play.

During league play the Chargers defeated the Panthers in a closely contested game, but had home court advantage. This time they were in the Panthers den.
    The Leduc Senior Boys finished league play winning their final game 87 to 71 over the W.P. Wagner Warriors. The victory pulled them into a three way tie for fourth, but after the tiebreaking procedures were applied they were placed sixth in league standings and will play the third ranked Pool B St. Albert Skyhawks in a qualifying game on Tuesday, February 25th.
