Belmont junior boys take third at Islands

Langford team gears up for provincial play this weekend

The Belmont junior boys basketball team is off the provincials, thanks to three wins in four games at the Island championship in Campbell River last weekend.

The Bulldogs secured third place with a 73-51 win over Mark Isfeld secondary from Courtenay, a 63-42 decision over St. Michael’s University School and a 69-48 triumph over Dover Bay secondary from Nanaimo.

Although the team was disappointed with the 76-36 semi-final loss to Brentwood College, Bulldogs coach Curt Spaven said they are pleased with the overall results.

“We’re more than happy with third place and a trip to the provincials,” Spaven added.

The boys junior basketball provincial championship takes place Feb. 27 to March 1 at the Langley Event Centre.
