The senior boys basketball team got off to a bit of a rocky start last night but eventually righted the ship in disposing of Holy Cross Secondary School 68-33 in semi final action in the 49th Annual St. Catharines Standard basketball tournament. Tied 10-10 after a sloppy first quarter the Tigers started to find their game early in the second quarter and by half time had secured a 32-19 lead. In the third quarter the relentless Tiger pressure finally got to the Raiders squad and a comfortable lead was established. Leading the Tiger attack was Cooper Rigg 25, Geno Bullard 18 and Kristers Moisejs 10 points.
Next up, a 7:30 p.m. championship encounter at the St. Catharines Collegiate gym tonight vs. perennial powerhouse Governor Simcoe Redcoats.
Hopefully the Collegiate gym on Friday night will be a sea of ORANGE AND BLACK.
TIGER SPIRIT – CATCH IT!
