The Isfeld Ice senior boys basketball team opened their season on the road with two exhibition games at Shawnigan Lake School this past weekend.
On Friday they defeated Brentwood 57-40, only giving up 16 points in the second half. Cole Hutchings led the team in scoring with 26 and Morgan Proctor contributed 15.
“In the first half we were 7-for-10 from the three-point line. We were very good defensively,” said Tom Elwood.
On Saturday the Ice defeated Shawnigan 68-28. Double-digit scoring came from Richard Girard 15, Proctor 11 and Hutchings with 25. “Again we were terrific defensively, holding them to 14 points in the first half,” said Elwood.
“Owen Kaefer did a great job defending both post players for Brentwood and Shawnigan, holding both teams leading scorers to a combined five points total.”
The Ice, ranked No. 1 in this week’s Vancouver Island 3A top 10 poll, are hosting their own tournament this weekend starting on Friday. Isfeld plays Parklands at 4:15 p.m. on Friday.
