Thunder rolls to perfect 5-0

Action was aplenty in the Port Alberni Ladies Basketball League

The Port Alberni Ladies Basketball League saw two exciting games Tuesday night with Dave Ralla’s Blue Thunder taking on Mace Electric’s Green Shockers and Mace Electric’s Red Phoenixes taking on Dave Ralla’s Yellow Lightning.

In the first game, the undefeated Thunder took a small lead in the first half and were up 34-30 at the half.  The Shockers played hard, but were not able to make up their point deficit, and they eventually lost 58-51.

The Thunder keep their perfect record going at 5-0. Julia Hudson had 25 points for the Shockers.

The second game pitted the two teams tied for second—the Phoenixes and the Lightning—against each other. This was a tight game with the leading score alternating between the two teams many times.

The Lightning however were able to eke out a 60-56 win. Jane Owen led the Lightning with 19 points. Janine Thompson had 22 points for the Phoenixes.

Regular season play concludes next week, with the playoffs taking place Oct. 22 and 29.  If you would like to play, drop by next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at ADSS or join the Port Alberni Ladies Basketball League Facebook page.
