Ice runners up at Totem Classic

Isfeld senior boys basketball completed a successful week of hoops action going 3-1.

Tuesday in their first game back after winter break, the Ice easily defeated Ballenas 78-31. Isfeld opened the game on a 13-4 run and the outcome was never in danger. Thaskani Mtawali led the Ice in scoring with 23, Hayden Fieret, playing his first game in over a month, added 17 while Thomas Green chipped in with 15 and Darrin Lessard had 10.

On Friday, Isfeld traveled to Alberni to play in the 63rd annual Totem Classic. The Ice faced Stelly’s of Victoria in their first game. Leading 39-30 early in the third quarter, the team went on a 14-2 run and blew the game wide open to win 72-45.

In the semi-final, the Ice faced host Alberni, whom they had beaten by six at home before the break. Holding leads of six at the end of one quarter and eight at the half, the Ice did not put the game away until midway through the third quarter by outscoring the Armada 31-15. The final was 82-49. Fieret led the scoring with 26 and Mtawali added 22.

In the final, Isfeld was up against Reynolds of Victoria and came up on the short end of a 64-61 score. A rash of turnovers and poor foul shooting hurt the Ice. They went 7-17 from the line while turning the ball over 24 times. Dawson Fox scored 22 and Riley Fussell added 13 for the game.

Mtawali and Fieret were selected to the tournament all-star team.
