Isfeld Ice girls third at Island championships

Avery Snider named to all-star team at AA basketball tournament

 

 

 

A second-place finish at the North Island tournament earned the Isfeld Ice senior girls basketball team a trip to the Island championships, Feb. 19-21 at St. Michael’s University School in Victoria.

The Ice finished third and played a challenge game Feb. 23 against St. Thomas Aquinas (a team from the  Lower Mainland) for a berth to the 2015 Senior Girls AA Basketball Provincial Championships. (Result unavailable at press time).

Isfeld’s first game at the Islands was against hosts SMUS. At one point SMUS was up by 17, but by halftime the gap was narrowed to five and the Ice displayed an all-out team effort throughout the second half to complete the comeback for a  68-51 win.

Isfeld’s second game was against South Island #1 seed Lambrick Park.  The score was tied at the end of the first quarter but at halftime the Lions led by 10 and they went on to win 73-56.

On Saturday morning Isfeld took on Wellington.  The Ice came out ready to play and took a quick lead. They were up by 23 at the half and won 79-36. It was another  impressive team effort with Island all-star Avery Snider leading the scoring. Sydney Kuhnert had a strong game, scoring 17 points, Kyla Dewitt hit a couple of three-pointers, and junior pick-up Rachel Heselgrave also sunk a trey.

Isfeld’s fourth and final game was against Carihi – with the winner earning a shot at a trip to the B.C.s via the challenge game.

From the tip-off it was a tightly contested match and the score was 38-32 for Isfeld at the half. The second half continued to be intense and fast paced. The impressive full-ourt defence by Camryn Kurts that shut down Carihi’s leading scorer along with the solid play of the rest of the Ice resulted in a 73-57 Isfeld victory.
