The Muskie senior boys’ basketball team’s trip to the ‘AA’ all-Ontario championships in St. Catharines was a quick one as they were eliminated after a pair of losses yesterday.
The black-and-gold, seeded last in the 18-team field, lost their opening game 69-30 to the third-ranked St. Francis Phoenix (St. Catharines) yesterday afternoon, then were ousted with a 71-39 loss to the Bishop Morocco Royals (Toronto) last night.
Will Anderson led the way offensively with 12 points while Lewis Linklater added 10.
Then against the Royals, the black-and-gold found themselves in an early hole they couldn’t escape from, falling behind 20-7 in the opening quarter and 37-16 at halftime.
The Muskies outscored their opponents 16-12 in the fourth quarter, but it was too little too late.
Scoring details on that game were unavailable as of press time.
