St. George’s Saints beat Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers for BC Junior Boys Title

IN the game of basketball with two equally matched team, it’s anybody’s game with leads changing often throughout the game. The lead by any team was never more than 6 points at any time. The Junior Boys Basketball Provincial Invitational Tournament game at the Langley Event Center on Tuesday was a duel of two great teams.
The Panthers had control of the most game  but in the last four minutes, the Panthers never seemed quite the same; they seemed to fall apart. Missing shots, not getting layups in, and causing turnover after turnover.
The Saints held the Panthers pointless for those four minutes of the game. With a strong offensive last-minute effort Vancouver’s #5 seeded St. George’s Saints upset Surrey’s #3 seeded Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, for a 54-46 win for its first BC Junior Boys Basketball Championship since winning the big game way back in 2005.
