First Boys’ Basketball Advance to Final!!

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!

First Boys Basketball Advance to Semi-Finals!

Ridley’s pressure defence created many high percentage shots early and often in yesterday’s decisive win over visiting Blessed Trinity Secondary School 74-27. Balanced scoring, exceptional pressure defence and a deep bench were all major factors in last evenings win. Kristers Moisejs (with his parents from Latvia in the crowd) led a balanced Tiger attack with 14 points while Cooper Rigg had 13, Geno Bullard scored 11, and Cam Sweetnam, Nick Green and Weston Saunders all chipped in with 8 points each. Next game is this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in a semifinal encounter with a talented Holy Cross Raiders team. Go Blacks Go!
