Isfeld Ice senior boys basketball team closed out a successful week with a win in the Esquimalt Fire Tournament, beating Alberni 58-44 in the final.
Noah Kaefer led the tournament in scoring and was selected tourney MVP. In the final against Alberni he scored 41. Nic Xylinas added nine and was selected to the All Tournament Team.
In the opening round the Ice faced Reynolds, as they had the previous week in Alberni. Although a much tighter game, the Ice prevailed 53-49. Kaefer was the top scorer with 30 while Xylinas contributed 14. In Saturday morning’s semifinal Isfeld defeated Parkland 56-46. The scoring was more balanced with Kaefer getting 17, Xylinas 14 and Davis Malton 14.
On Tuesday the Ice travelled to Campbell River to play the Timberline Wolves in a league game. With everyone hitting the scoresheet Isfeld won 59-26, Kaefer led four scorers in double figures with 13, Xylinas had 12, Malton added 11 and Anthony Xylinas tallied 10. “It was a great team effort as the Wolves managed only two points at the end of the first quarter and were never in the game after that,” said Isfeld coach Tom Elwood.
