Ice, Towhees competing at North Island tournaments

Senior boys 3A basketball at Isfeld, senior boys 4A hoops at Port Alberni

After nine days off, the Isfeld Ice senior boys basketball team returned to action at the Inaugural Campbell River Police Tournament hosted by Timberline Secondary.

After an easy opening round win over SMUS of Victoria, the Ice struggled to close out games against Carihi and Thomas Haney (Maple Ridge).

Against Carihi in the semifinal the Ice fell 49-45. Up by one with two minutes to go Isfeld failed to score down the stretch. Leading scorers for the Ice were Noah Kaefer with 12, Davis Malton with 11 and Hank Mangdaz with 10.

In the day’s second game it was deja vu for the Ice. Up four with three minutes to play, Isfeld failed to execute at either end of the floor, falling 53-50 to the Thunder of Thomas Haney.

Playoffs start this week with Isfeld hosting the North Islands. All teams participating qualify for Islands next week at Parklands in Victoria, with the top three teams from there going to the B.C. championships in Langley.
