EMCS Wolverines take two big wins

Senior boys' basketball teams wallops Vic High and St. Andrews

The EMCS Wolverines bounced back in a big way from a disappointing seniors boys’ basketball tournament in Esquimalt to take two wins from South Island rivals last week.

The Wolverines beat up on St. Andrews 79-56 on Tuesday before repeating their dominating performance by walloping Vic High 72-56 Wednesday.

Against St. Andrews, Edward Milne’s starting five dominated with Andy Abel and Brady Greenwood netting 16 points to lead the local side.

“It was a solid, well-played game all-around,” said co-coach Alex Wright, adding most players on the team scored at least one basket.

The momentum continued at Vic High Wednesday.

EMCS took an early first quarter lead before Vic High clawed back. The quarter ended with a slight 15-11 lead for Sooke.

The Wolverines took control of the game over the next three quarters.

“We got to take a look at a few bench players who haven’t got a lot of floor time,” Wright said.

Guard Max Clouser got his first start of the year, rimming six points. Top point-getter was Frederik Moeller with 27.

 

EMCS seniors honoured

The EMCS Wolverines basketball program will salute their graduating players with a special Seniors Night on Feb. 3.

Taking centre stage in the last game of the year will be forward Brady Greenwood and guard Frederik Moeller. Three international students from China will also be honoured.

Greenwood has been with the EMCS basketball program for four years. Moeller is an exchange student from Denmark.

Event organizers are hoping for a big crowd for the event.

Seniors Night begins at 5:45 p.m. in the school gym.
