Wolverine girls romp over St. Andrews crew

Basketball action

Shanelle Morris

A confident and well-drilled Edward Milne Community School junior girls basketball squad proved much too much for a visiting St. Andrews crew on February 17.

With a balanced and vigorous attack, accurate shooting, backed up by tenacious rebounding the Wolverines had a 20-2 lead before the visitors knew what hit them.

The girls were clearly riding the momentum built a couple of nights earlier in a thrilling double-overtime win over closely matched Spencer.

This exhibition showing was strong in every way, with every member of the team contributing in a 48-20 victory.

Shannel Morris led the scoring parade with 15 points, and was a consistent irritant under the hoop. Time and time again she outfought the opposition, getting a vice-like grip on balls up for grabs.

Coach Ian McKenzie was beaming at the final buzzer, looking ahead to a Tuesday test

“I felt really confident,” said Morris following the game. “I felt we were strong enough to win… so we did a good job.” With playoff games coming the following week, she indicated more of that confidence, stating that if the good team-play continued…”we’ll do pretty well.”
