Alberni spring ladies hoops league opens season

Canadian Tire’s Sandra Boehm

The Port Alberni Ladies Basketball League kicked off their spring season this week.

Two games were played on Monday night at the Alberni District Secondary School gymnasium.

In the first game, Lace It Up beat Dave Ralla’s Ballerz 47-46 in the season opener.

The younger Lace It Up team took a commanding lead and were up 32-24 at half time.  Then the Ballerz fought back and were up by four points with a minute to go in the game.

Lace It Up took advantage of the tired Ballerz, scoring a basket, and getting the ball back with two seconds to go, down by just one point. The ball was inbounds and Katrina Hobbs nailed the shot winning the game for Lace It Up.

Hobbs lead Lace It Up with 12 points.  Diane Haley was the high scorer for the Ballerz with 25 points.

In the second game, Mace Electric Shockers beat 2010 champion Canadian Tire Retreads 57-35.

The game was even early on, but Canadian Tire’s small bench couldn’t keep up with a full bench of young Mace Electric players.

The Shockerz went on several scoring runs and swept the Retreads.

Paige Hansen scored 13 points for Mace Electric.  Jami Oliver dropped 16 points for Canadian Tire.

The action continues next week with Mace Electric taking on Dave Ralla’s Ballerz in the first game, and Lace It Up versus Canadian Tire in the second.
