The defending champions appear headed towards a third consecutive Surrey Fire Fighters’ Goodwill Classic title.

The Holy Cross Crusaders advanced to tomorrow’s semifinal round of the all-Surrey senior girls high school basketball tournament with a 91-16 romp over the Panorama Ridge Thunder Tuesday afternoon at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.

The Crusaders are currently ranked number one among B.C.’s Senior AA schools and won last year’s tournament while led by a group of Grade 10s. Several players from that group were among the leading scorers Tuesday.

Michelle Bos, the tournament’s Most Valuable Player a year ago, netted 24 points, while Amy Sprangers scored 14 and Rachel Beauchamp notched nine.

Nicole Vander Helm added 22 for the winners, who were up 52-6 at halftime.

The Crusaders will tip-off against the North Surrey Spartans tomorrow (Friday) at 2:30 p.m. in one semifinal, while the other will pit the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers against the Fleetwood Park Dragons at 4 p.m.

North Surrey advanced by knocking off the Semiahmoo Totems 52-43.

The Panthers stopped the Earl Marriott Mariners 60-41 in their quarterfinal contest Tuesday, getting 13 points from Vanessa Jakubowski. Nicole Frketich and Sam Horth contributed nine each.

Chantal Colby with 15 points and Hanna Jawani with 10 paced the Mariners.

Fleetwood Park, ranked eighth in the provincial Senior AAA poll, handled the Elgin Park Orcas 65-36.

The semifinal winners will advance to Saturday’s championship game, tipping off at 4 p.m. at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.
