Cal goes 3-0 on home court against Saints and Gryphons

The Queen Charlotte Secondary Saints made a rare appearance off the island to take on the Kermodes the evening of Friday, Jan. 25

Here’s Terrace’s Keel Haldane in the air while two players from Smithers watch the two-pointer go through.

The Queen Charlotte Secondary Saints made a rare appearance off the island to take on the Kermodes the evening of Friday, Jan. 25 and they did not disappoint the crowd.

It was an offensive affair with both squads filling the hoop. Kermodes scored an amazing 60 points in the first half to the Saints 39. But the Saints did not quit, showing a great deal of poise and resilience as a team.

The shootout continued in the second half as both teams continued to put up big numbers. At the final buzzer, the Kermodes outscored the Saints 111-81.

The Saints were lead by a very talented duo: Joel Richardson who notched 34 points and Nathan Vogstad with 28.

Kermodes were led by Reegin Maki with 30, Marcus MacKay 28, Patrick Kurek 18, Kynan Finnie 12 and Brennan Jay 10.

On Saturday morning the teams were back at it. A little more defence was applied at both ends of the court as both teams attempted to slow down the other’s transition game.

Kermodes took a slim 40-39 lead into the half before outscoring the Saints 45-35 in the second half to take the victory 85-74.

Saints were led by Duncan Rumak with 26 and Nathan Vogstad with 23. Kermodes were led once again by Reegin Maki with 31, and Marcus MacKay with 26.

Right after the Kermodes dispensed of the Saints, they took to the court to take on the Smithers Gryphons. It was a chance to get the whole team involved.

The game was fairly close in the first half as the Kermodes led 29 – 23 going into the second. But they then went on to outscore the Gryphons 34 – 14  in the second half to win 63 – 37. Kermodes were led in scoring by Cam Netzel with 15 points, Drew Kenmuir with 13 and Mat Brown with 10.

This weekend the Kermodes host the Rainmakers on February 8 and 9 at the Caledonia gym. And it’s less than a month until Zones. They take place March 1 and 2 with the Senior Girls hosting their zones on Feb. 22 and 23. Both are at the Caledonia gym.
