Hoops action


Joey Payeur

Eva Morrisseau of the Robert Moore Mustangs (12) hustled back to try and keep Simone Payne of the J.W. Walker Wildcats from turning the corner during second-half action in the Wildcats’ 28-16 win in round-robin action at the Grade 8 girls’ basketball tournament hosted at Walker. The two teams met again in Saturday’s final, with Payne’s free throw in the dying seconds the difference in a 13-12 victory for the Wildcats. In boys’ hoops action, meanwhile, the Donald Young All-Stars plowed their way to a 5-0 record to capture the Jim Oster Memorial Invitational at the Couchiching multi-use facility.
