Armada 2-0 against Towees

Like a stew whose ingredients have been slow cooking the Alberni District Secondary School Armada senior girls basketball team is almost ready.

Like a stew whose ingredients have been slow cooking the Alberni District Secondary School Armada senior girls basketball team is almost ready.

The team beat GP Vanier 67-59 at a game in Courtenay on Tuesday night.

Jamie Oliver and Leah Hudson each netted 16 points in the effort while Danielle Lessard scored 13.

The Armada are now 2-0 against the Towees.

The game likely previewed the likely pecking order for the top three of eight teams that will play in next month’s north Island playoffs.

The team has played 20 games so far and will likely play 30 by year’s end.

The team plays in Abbotsford this weekend and opens against Terry Fox Secondary.

Last weekend they lost to Windsor and South Delta but won against South Okanagan at the Victoria Police Basketball Tournament.

“Okanagan was our best effort this year,” Freethy said.

“It’s all starting to come together now.”

Foul shots… the Armada junior girls earned third place at a tournament in Courtenay last weekend. The Armada senior boys were beaten 82 -20 by Oak Bay in their first game at the Victoria Police tourney, but lost two close games against Parkland and Reynolds. The Armada junior boys were 3-1 at a tournament in Nanaimo last weekend.
