Brookswood Bobcats' Talya Jackson fights through a triple team during her team's game against the Oak Bay Breakers on Dec. 1 at the Langley Events Centre. The teams met again on Dec. 14 in the finals of the Victoria Christmas tournament with the Bobcats winning 80-41.

’Cats add another tournament title

For the second time this month, Brookswood senior girls basketball team delivers tournament championship

The Brookswood Bobcats continue to steamroll the competition, winning their second tournament of the year, and once again in decisive fashion.

The senior girls basketball team — ranked No. 1 among Triple-A schools in the province — was competing at the Victoria Christmas Tournament.

They also won the Telus Classic earlier this month.

The ’Cats went a perfect 3-0, overcoming a slow start in the first game to gradually increase their margin of victory by the third and final game.

Brookswood opened with a 68-51 win over the Claremont Spartans in game which coach Neil Brown admitted his team was “nervous and did not finish plays.”

“We were ripe for the picking,” he said.

Jessie Brown led the way with 21 points while Tayla Jackson had a monster game with 16 points and 15 rebounds.

The second game saw more composure and better finish as they hammered the Isfeld Ice 92-45 behind Brown’s 20 points and Jackson’s 16.

And they wrapped things up with an 80-41 win over the Oak Bay Breakers in the championship final.

Leading the way was Aislinn Kong, who ran the offence to perfection, played tight defence and scored 27 points. She also got things done defensively, holding one of Oak Bay’s top players off the scoreboard.

A big key to the tournament title was the Bobcats ability to hit from beyond the arc as they struck on 38 per cent of their three-point shots (27-for-71).
