The ability to put a bad game out of its system quickly is a good thing for the Cowichan Thunderbird girls’ basketball team.

The T-Birds expected to win last Tuesday in Campbell River against Carihi but it didn’t go their way in a six-point loss.

A different team returned to action Thursday at Cowichan Secondary School and defeated Port Alberni 57-55 after trailing 34-28 at halftime.

Allie White scored the winning points on foul shots in the last minute.

“Every one of the girls who played gave all they had as they had beaten us earlier in the year,’’ noted T-Birds’ co-coach Jim Nugent. “We have played three close games this year and lost the previous two so it was nice to win this one.’’
