Cal senior boys boast record regular season

The Caledonia Kermode Sr. Boys basketball team topped off their regular season with two convincing wins in Prince Rupert

The Caledonia Kermode Sr. Boys basketball team topped off their regular season with two convincing wins in Prince Rupert over the weekend of Feb. 15 – despite competing without four players who were out because of illness and assorted medical issues.

On Friday night, the Kermodes took it to the Rainmakers even though they did not shoot as well as they should have. The Kermodes, without starting senior Patrick Kurek, led by 17 at the half and rolled to a 71 – 49 victory.

It was a balanced attack led by Marcus MacKay with 22 points, Kynan Finnie 14, Reegin Maki 13 and Brennan Jay 11.

In game two on Saturday afternoon, it was much the same as the Kermodes came out on top 79-54.

Reegin Maki led the way with 30 points, Marcus MacKay with 22 points, Brennan Jay with 10 points and Ethan Anderson with eight points.

Next games for the Kermodes are the AAA Zones against the Saints from Queen Charlotte Secondary this weekend.

The competition should be a good matchup as the Saints have some talented players that do not quit. The last time the Kermodes met the Saints in January they won both games – but it was close.

The Kermode defence will need to come up big to limit the offensively powered Saints on the scoreboard.

All the action, in the best of three match-up, starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 1. Game two goes at 1 p.m. on Saturday and a third game will go, if necessary, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening.

All games are at the Caledonia gym.

The winner of this matchup will represent the northwest zone at the AAA Provincial Championships in Langley March 12-16.

It’s been a banner year for the Kermodes, as they finished the regular season with a record of 24 wins and four losses.
