VIU Mariners 72
Douglas Royals 56
It wasn’t the most gifted offensive performance by either team and perhaps the 2:00pm start was to blame, but the Mariners did just enough to win their 13th of the campaign.
From the field the Mariners shot just 26%, but from downtown they shot 34%. For the second straight game Avery Snider was a force off the bench. She finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds and Shayce Johnston also tallied 17. Guard Emma Platner nailed three-three pointers and had nine points.
The Royals on the other hand also had a tough game shooting and finished at 27% from the field. Rachel Beauchamp was outstanding under the net with 28 points and 12 rebounds. Gisha Sangha came off the bench and dropped in 13 on the strength of four-three pointers.
Capilano Blues 70
Camosun Chargers 61
The first half of the ball game appeared to be in the favour of the Chargers, however the tables were turned in the second half where the Blues came back to win outscoring them 23-17 in the final frame.
All but nine of the Blues points came from their starters as each of them hit the double-digit mark. Alessia Brutto finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds and Sherrie Errico finished with 12 points despite missing all 10 of her three point attempts.
The Chargers did not shoot well and still only lost by nine. They shot 24% from the field and were six of 25 from behind the arch. Jasmine de Vries scored a team high 18 points and had 12 rebounds and Tessa Lannon-Paakspuu tallied 16 points and 14 rebounds.
Langara Falcons 68
Okanagan Coyotes 66
It was a back and forth game, but the Falcons record a huge road win snapping a two-game slide. Ainsliegh Mensah scored a team high 14 points and Alexa Leynes added 13. The visitors had just three players coming off the bench with Breanna Homeniuk scoring 11 points.
The Coyotes shot just 27% from the field led by Elizabeth Henne and her game high 20 points to compliment her 11 rebounds. Ciara Bamford also collected a double-double of 13 points and 13 boards in the set back.
