North-South challenging

Brentwood College and Shawnigan Lake School basketball teams just can’t get away from each other, no matter what the event.

The valley rivals clashed in the third-place game during the annual Brentwood College North-South Challenge for junior boys’ basketball teams.

After a tight first half that had Shawnigan Lake ahead by two points, Brentwood blew the game open in the second half and won 54-34.

Brentwood coach Liam Sullivan pointed out Joshua Charles had a very strong tournament and made the all-star team. Charles is only in Grade 9.

Hayden Frisch was a monster in the middle for Brentwood and Woody Lee showed patience and savvy at the guard position.

Eight teams — four each from the north and south — competed in the tournament.

Brentwood won its first game over Highland of Comox 57-40 and then lost a close one to Mount Douglas of Victoria, 47-40.

Two Victoria teams wound up playing for the championship, with Lambrick Park beating Mount Douglas.

Brentwood is in the Mark Isfeld tournament at Courtenay this weekend.
