EMCS Wolverines drop to fourth place

Sooke club still eyes playoff berth

It’s been an up and down season so far for the EMCS Wolverines senior boys’ basketball team.

Early in the season, the squad faced a mire of injuries where at one point five players were in the sick bay. Now, it’s just bad play.

On Tuesday, the Wolverines were dumped by cross-town rivals Vic High by a score of 64-44. The loss dropped the Wolverines to fourth place in the division with a 3-4 record.

“It was not a great game for us at all,” said head coach Trevor Bligh, as he watched his team commit 16 unforced turnovers.

But it wasn’t all bad. With 3:30 minutes left in the fourth quarter the Wolverines were down by five point only to see the wheels come off.

Riley Stratton had a good game as he netted 13 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Wolverines’ offense. Storm Spackman added seven.

Vic High’s Jake Docena led the game in scoring with 25 points.

The Wolverines get to redeem themselves Friday when they visit Reynolds secondary and again Tuesday when they’re at Royal Bay.

“We need to win one of these last three games on the road,” Bligh said, referring to the team’s playoff hopes.
