Senior teams from two local high schools play home games

UPDATED to include exact scores.

The senior boys and girls basketball teams of two local high schools matched off on Jan. 29 at St. Augustine School — Ponoka Secondary Campus (PSC) Broncs and the St. A Kings and Queens.

Senior girls

The PSC Broncs senior girls won their home game 63-23, dominating for most of the game, according to head coach and PSC athletic director Paula Chapman.

The Broncs played a solid, one-sided game.

“We were the stronger team,” said Chapman, adding the girls drove the ball to the hoop well and put up a strong defence.

Senior boys

The St. Augustine School Kings senior boys won their match against the Broncs by a decisive 82-64.

“We were behind all game and kept it close most of the game until about seven minutes left when they took a 10-point lead and we couldn’t get anything going,” said PSC head coach Scott Brown.

“We have been in a transition year with a lot of new players trying to get on the same page,” he said, adding St. A played well and they capitalized on all of the Broncs’ mistakes.

“We look forward to playing them again because it brought out the competitiveness in all the players to have an in-town rivalry.”

Upcoming games

Both the PSC senior girls and boys teams have three games left in their regular season, and they’re all home games.

They play Pigeon Lake on Feb. 19, St. Dominic Catholic School from Rocky Mountain House on Feb. 26, and Rimbey on March 4.

March 4 is also seniors night, where graduating Grade 12 players will be recognized.

“It’s great to have the fans come out to any high school game,” said Chapman.

PSC’s athletic calendar can be found on the school’s website at psc.wolfcreek.ab.ca/athletics.

The St. Augustine Queens senior girls are hosting a basketball tournament on Feb. 14 and 15.

St. A’s school calendar can be found at staug.starcatholuc/about/calendar.
