T-Birds pull away
Brentwood College juniors hung tough with Cowichan’s explosive Junior T-Birds for three quarters Thursday at Cowichan Secondary School.
But Cowichan fired up the attack and tightened up the defense to turn a 38-30 lead into a 53-32 victory in junior boys’ basketball league action.
“Cowichan started the fourth quarter with a sense of urgency,’’ noted co-coach Lucky Walia of the team’s 15-0 run before Brentwood scored the final basket.
Josh Charles led Cowichan with 24 points and Tyler Hudson added 10. Skylar Rustad was tops for Brentwood with 15.
“I was very pleased with our game against Cowichan,’’ noted Brentwood coach Liam Sullivan. “They are one of the best teams in the province with arguably the best player for his age in the province in Josh Charles. So for us to be within six points at half was a great result.’’
Brentwood is having a strong season with a 16-4 record overall and two tournament wins.
