Claremont the common foe Brookswood and Mountain both beat

Langley’s two junior boys basketball teams combine for two wins at provincial championships

The Brookswood Bobcats may have won just one of five games, but the team was agonizingly close to a much better showing.

The team was competing at the junior boys basketball provincial invitational tournament, which they co-hosted alongside the Mountain Eagles, Feb. 24 to 27 at the Langley Events Centre.

Seeded 29th going in, the ’Cats went 1-4, but two of those losses were by one basket apiece.

Brookswood lost 66-49 to the Handsworth Royals and 58-56 to the Dawson Creek Coyotes on the opening day.

They did bounce back with a 73-64 win over the Claremont Spartans on Sunday before losing 77-40 to the MacNeill Ravens. Brookswood’s final game was a 48-46 setback to the Tamanawis Wildcats.

And much like their Langley counterparts, Mountain was also 1-4, with their lone victory also over Claremont.

The Eagles, seeded 32nd, lost 71-40 to Vancouver College, 76-41 to Mount Baker, 42-29 to MacNeill, before breaking through with the 52-46 win over Claremont. Mountain closed the tournament with a 41-39 loss to Oak Bay.
