Isfel Ice girls win their eight-team tournament

Senior basketball squad displays disciplined defence in final game

The Isfeld Ice senior girls’ basketball team hosted – and won – an eight-team tournament on  Jan. 23-24, with seven teams being from Vancouver Island and one from the Lower Mainland.

Isfeld played their first game in front of a home crowd during the school lunch hour against Brentwood and won 62-49.  Kyla Dewitt was named Isfeld’s defensive player of the game.

The Ice’s second game was against Vanier.  Isfeld was first onto the scoreboard and continued to lead throughout the  game, winning 69-50. Defensive player of this game for Isfeld was Avery Snider.

Carihi was Isfeld’s opponent in the final on Saturday night, where the Ice prevailed 75-59. Isfeld grabbed an early lead with good shooting from Snider (who finished with 49 points) along with some help from Sophie Reimer and Sydney Kuhnert, who sunk a couple of threes each, and Danielle Robertson and Camryn Curts who scored some fast break lay-ups.

Delaynee Pedersen Skene and Kyla Dewitt pulled down some good rebounds and worked hard on defence while injured teammates Chelsea Lachapelles and Maddi Eaton led the cheering from the bench.

The Ice thanked their Grade 8 pickups, Aime Brucker and Rebecca Green, for doing a good job on the floor when the seniors needed to be subbed off for a quick break.  Coaches were proud of the girls and especially pleased with the disciplined defence they played throughout the final game.

Kuhnert was the defensive player of the game for the Ice’s final game, and Snider won the tournament’s three-point shooting competition, scoring 11 threes in one minute.

The Ice will play their final league game at home on Tuesday, Jan. 27 against Wellington and then will be practising hard to prepare themselves for the North Island Championships in Parksville on Feb. 13-14.
