Elecs junior girls finish fourth at home tournament; Oxbow finishes first

The Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs junior girls basketball team finished fourth at their home tournament this weekend.

The Elecs opened the tournament with a 54-51 win over Regina’s Martin Collegiate Monarchs, but lost 52-18 to the Yorkton Regional High School Raiders. That left Estevan second in their pool, and they faced the Fillmore Falcons in the third place game.

After a back-and-forth contest to start, the Falcons pulled away and won 53-38. The two teams were tied 10-10 after the first quarter, and the Falcons held a 25-22 advantage at half time.

But the Falcons scored the first seven points of the third quarter to lead by 10, and built the lead to 45-29 after three quarters. The Elecs scored the first four points of the fourth quarter during a brief rally, but the Falcons took over once again and dashed any hopes of a comeback.

The Oxbow Black Knights defeated the Raiders 61-52 to win the tournament.
