Brookswood qualifies for provincials, but game over for Walnut Grove
The season will continue into next month for one Langley senior girls basketball team while it came to an end for another.
The Brookswood Bobcats are guaranteed a top-four finish at the AAA Fraser Valley championships and will play at the B.C. provincial championships March 6 to 9.
The ’Cats made sure of that with a pair of victories in the opening two rounds of the Fraser Valley championships. Brookswood, the top seed in the 16-team draw, defeated No. 16 North Surrey 93-34 on Monday and then beat No. 8 Yale 96-48 on Tuesday. Both games were at Brookswood.
With the wins, the Bobcats advance to the Fraser Valley semifinals tomorrow (Friday) against the No. 5 W.J. Mouat Hawks. The game will be played at the Langley Events Centre.
But the Walnut Grove Gators saw their season come to a close.
The Gators, seeded 11th, lost 82-72 to the No. 6 MEI Eagles on Monday and then facing a must-win game on Tuesday, dropped a 56-41 decision to the No. 14 Chilliwack Storm.
