On Saturday

EMCS boys receive honourable mention

Sooke's Wolverines, the EMCS boys basketball team, has started their season.

On Wednesday night, the EMCS boys basketball team, the Wolverines, beat the 4A Belmont Bulldogs with a slight lead of 60-58. The high scorer was Sean Mckenzie with 15 points.

Quinn Yates had 12 rebounds in limited action, and Abe Lemontagne had 11.

On Saturday, the boys played without three starters.

A poor effort and numerous turnovers led to a 70 to 39 loss in a game against Bishop Carroll  from Calgary. The boys were out-played and out-hustled by this Alberta team.

On a more positive note, the Wolverines were listed this week as honourable mentions in the BC AAA polls, and ranked fifth on the Island.

Tuesday marks the first league game against Stelly’s. As well as the return of both Lemontagnes, Yates will be there on the starting rotation.
