It was an important win for the boys.
The Portage Collegiate Institute Trojans finished off their home tournament with a win Saturday afternoon when they took down Calvin Christian 81-29 after the boys dropped their opening games Friday.
“It was an important win for momentum so late in the season, and an important win emotionally,” says Trojans head coach, Janey Bradford. “It’s tough after losing both games yesterday but we got this one here and we need to keep it up now. The race for playoffs is tight and we can’t just rely on other teams to lose, we have to get some wins coming up or we could be on the outside looking in.”
It was the final home game of the season for the PCI Trojans as they still have two regular season matches remaining this week, but both are on the road. Trojans’ Noah Spence led the team with 21 points while Tristan Cordeiro and John Walsh each had 18. It was a runaway game where the Trojans had some time to work on a few things including ball control and their shooting, both of which looked great to end the game.
The boys are back on the court Monday when they visit Grant Park in Winnipeg. The Trojans tip off at 6:30 p.m. after the Saints game finishes up.
