Belmont basketball boys go 1-2 in North Van

Bulldogs have close game against eventual tournament finalist

The Belmont Bulldogs gained more experience against mainland opponents last weekend at the North Shore Invitational high school boys basketball tournament.

One of just two Island squads at the 16-team event in North Vancouver, the Bulldogs finished with a 1-2 record after losing a tight game, 65-56, to eventual tournament finalist Charles Hays of Prince Rupert in last Thursday’s opener.

Belmont easily handled a team from Northwest Territories 65-32 on Friday, then finished off with an 83-48 loss to the Pitt Meadows Marauders, who lost the consolation final 70-59 to Heritage Woods of Port Moody.

Hays lost the championship final 60-44 to Kitsilano of Vancouver.

Belmont’s next action is Thursday (Dec. 18) at 7:30 p.m. against Oak Bay at that school’s Gary Taylor Classic tournament opener. The game doubles as a city league contest.
