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. The CTK girls were in a very competitive league where only one game separated third place and CTK. On Tuesday, February 25th CTK traveled to J. Percy Page in the quarterfinals. 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.
    In Junior play the boys continued undefeated as they swamped the Salisbury Sabres 73 to 44 and finished undefeated in league play sporting a 9 win 0 lost record. The qualifying games will be played on Wednesday, February 25th and the Tigers hosting the eighth place team in Pool B. In girls action the Tigers stumbled against the Jasper Place Rebels on Thursday, February 20th 57 to 51. The lost dropped the squad into fourth place and into key final league game, before the playoffs, against the Ross Shepard Thunderbirds will determine their position for playoff purposes. Win and they could be as high as third in the league, but a lost could drop them all the way down to sixth.
