Senior guard, Chris Shankar, had 17 points and Grade 11 guard, Sean McKenzie, chipped in 11 points, including two big free throws in the final 35 seconds to seal the win.

EMCS is now 1-1 in league play. Losing by 2 to the Esquimalt Dockers before Christmas. The team resumes league play Tuesday, Jan. 15, when they travel to Pacific Christian.
