Two Langley girls basketball teams are both in the running for their respective provincial championships.

The Walnut Grove Gators — the second seed — needed a rally to defeat No. 7 South Kamloops in the quarter-final, overcoming the deficit to win 63-56 on Thursday at the Langley Events Centre.

The Gators had cruised to a 71-16 opening round win over Nechako Valley.

The win set up a semifinal showdown with No. 3 Kelowna on Friday (March 4) at 5 p.m.

And in the B.C. 3A senior girls tournament, the top-seed Brookswood Bobcats — who are also the two-time defending champions — have crushed their first two opponents of the championships at the LEC.

Brookswood beat North Peace 110-20 on Wednesday and hammered Claremont 76-28 in the quarter-finals.

The Bobcats face No. 5 Oak Bay on Friday (March 4) at 6 p.m.
