Huskies fall just short
The North Delta Huskies fell a game short of grabbing the final Fraser Valley berth to next week's B.C. Senior AAA Boys High School Basketball Tournament at the Langley Events Centre. North Delta lost 60-53 to the Yale Lions in Saturday afternoon’s playoff game for seventh place.
The Huskies led 14-12 after one quarter, but trailed 25-24 at the half and 48-43 at three-quarter time.
Harbir Phool was North Delta’s top scorer with 13 points. Noman Saleem added 13, and Manvir Gahir scored nine while pulling down 10 rebounds.
The Huskies, seeded 10th for the Fraser Valley tournament, defeated the South Delta Sun Devils 57-47 last Thursday at Fleetwood Park Secondary, avoiding elimination and earning two chances to win one more game. They lost 79-52 to the W.J. Mouat Hawks of Abbotsford on Friday in Langley, before the season ended with Saturday’s loss.
