Teams open high school boys basketball season with four games Tuesday

Semiahmoo Secondary was as busy as ever Tuesday afternoon, as students, parents and basketball players of all ages jammed the gym for a handful of boys basketball games.

The tip-off to the hoops season featured four games beween the Semiahmoo Totems and visiting Brookswood Bobcats from Langley. The schedule began with a 2 p.m. tilt between the schools’ Grade 8 boys teams – won 33-31 by the Bobcats – and was followed by a Grade 9 tilt, which Semiahmoo won 71-32.

In the evening, the two schools’ junior teams squared off, with Brookswood winning 75-55. The senior Totems got the better of their Langley rivals in the final game off the day, beat the senior ‘Cats 99-46. In that game, Semiahmoo’s Adam Paige led all scorers with 28 points – highlighted by what Semi coach Ed Lefurgy called a “monster baseline dunk” in the first quarter – while Vlad Mihaila had 18 points.
