Isfeld Ice senior boys basketball team remains red hot

The Isfeld Ice senior boys basketball team completed a successful first week back after the winter break, going 4-0.

On Thursday the Ice upped their league record to 2-0 defeating Carihi 74-33. After a slow start, going down 10-2, Isfeld went on an 18-2 run to take control of the game. Up 35-18 at the half the boys cruised to victory.

Leading scorers were Hank Magdanz with 21 points on three treys and Noah Kaefer with 20. For the game, the Ice hit nine from three-point land.

On Friday the Ice headed to Alberni for the 61st annual Totem Tournament. Isfeld opened with a 87-39 win over Stelly’s of Victoria. Logan Benninger hit five threes as the Ice made eight for the game. Anthony Brown had 10, Jeppe Madsen had 11,  Magdanz hit for 13, Benninger had 15 and Noah Kaefer contributed 18.

In the semifinal Isfeld faced Guilford Park of Surrey. This was a revenge game from last year as Guilford upset the Ice with a come-from-behind, one-point win.

In a scrappy affair, Isfeld controlled the boards and slowed the tempo of the game down, taking the Sabres out of their pressing running style and winning 72-52. Once again perimeter shooting helped as the Ice hit 11 threes for the game. Kaefer led with 15 points followed by Davis Malton with 14 and Madsen with 13.

In the final the Ice faced a bigger Ballenas squad. It was a back-and-forth affair in the first half with neither team leading by more than five points. The Ice resembled their nickname in the first half, making only 3-of-11 threes.

Coming out of the half the Ice led 24-23 and outscored the Whalers 20-8 in the third quarter to open a 12-point lead going into the fourth. Malton got hot from the outside, hitting seven threes for the game and earning player of the game honours.

The Ice won the tournament with a 58-40 victory. Madsen made the All Tournament team and Kaefer was selected the tourney MVP. This week the Ice are in Victoria defending their Esquimalt Fire tournament title.
