The girls teams put on a dominant display in the early half of Saturday’s game against l’Essor academy. Led offensively by Smaranda Leu the Lakeview team went up by 10 points in the early stages. Defensively l’Essor had no answer for the girls pressure which was led by Rachel Hooper. The girls played a very aggressive and performed outstandingly over the course of the game. As the latter stages of the game wore on the fatigued girls came up short to l’Essor academy 21-16. The girls have really put in some strong performances in the last two weeks and look poised to have a strong finish to the season this Tuesday.
The intermediate boys continued their impressive season in what was their game of the year thus far. Led by centre Zach Ublansky the Lakeview boys shook off some early game jitters and worked extraordinarily well as a team upsetting the l’Essor Academy. With less than a minute left in the game the boys looked calm and collected as they took the court. They worked as a team and scored the final and winning basket to continue their undefeated season! The intermediate boys look to make their impression at the Academie Ste. Cecile as the youngest team in the tournament!
The senior boys put on an outstanding performance against the l’Essor Academy / High School Team. The boys went up against several travel and high school basketball players and played very well over the course of the game. Both teams shared equal chances, and led by David Nunes the senior boys tallied their highest scoring game of the season. Unfortunately the boys came up short in the latter stages of the game falling to the l’Essor team 21-12. The boys are now looking forward to Tuesday where they take on rivals Maranatha in game 1 of our year end Tournament!
Let’s GO LAKEVIEW!
