Wolverines win first game of year

EMCS boys squad earns victory in Courtenay tournament

The EMCS Wolverines recorded their first win of the season last weekend posting a victory over Maple Ridge’s Westview secondary school Wildcats at the Mark R. Isfeld Ice Invitational basketball tournament in Courtenay.

The Edward Milne Community School senior boys team has struggled with the wins so far in the early going, and dropped two other games in the tournament – 58-40 to St. Jean de Brebeuf and 85-70 against Nanaimo’s John Barsby secondary.

Tournament games don’t count for points in the regular season.

The Wolverines opened the season Dec. 5, losing 81-37 to the Royal Bay Ravens.

It wasn’t the start Wolverines’ coach Alex Wright was hoping for.

“The energy just left the building for us,” Wright said. “Guys were getting hurt, a couple guys were sick, and some of our players who missed practice found it hard to keep up.”

Ryan Fehr and Garrett Gilbertson potted nine points each for the Wolverines.

TAKEAWAYS … The Edward Milne Wolverine Classic is set for Dec. 21 and 22 in Sooke and will feature six team this year: Belmont, Reynolds, Spectrum, EMCS, Gulf Islands and Victoria.
