VIU Mariners 74
Douglas Royals 49
The hometown Mariners didn’t give the visiting Royals much hospitality on Thursday completely dominating them for their 12th win of the season.
Offensively the Mariners outscored the Royals 15-5 in the first quarter and never really looked back. Avery Snider came off the bench to lead the way with a game high 19 points. In all 10 of their 11 players on the roster scored at least one bucket. Shayce Johnston was the lone starter in double-digits finishing with 10 points.
The Royals found it difficult to get their offence flowing against a very tough Mariners defence. Reigning Athlete of the Week Rachel Beauchamp was the only player to do damage with 17 points and 11 rebounds. As a team they shot just 30% from the field and only connected once in 16-three point attempts.
The Mariners (12-1) will host the Royals (7-7) again on Friday afternoon at 2:00pm.
