Clan rally to top Spartans

The Trinity Western Spartans were four minutes away from their first ever victory over the Simon Fraser Clan.


But the Clan women’s basketball team scored the game’s final 11 points to win 56-50 in non-conference action at the Langley Events Centre on Thursday (Dec. 30).


The Spartans trailed by 10 after the first quarter, but used a strong second quarter to get back into the game.


“We are trying to convince our girls that defence does feed the offence. And that was one of the adjustments that we made in the second quarter, we had more defensive pressure and got some rebounds, which resulted in easy looks,”said coach Cheryl Jean-Paul.
