Basketball season down to crunch time for Cougars

Big games in the days ahead will decide the fate of Chemainus senior, midget teams

Chemainus Cougars lost 85-56 to Duncan Christian School Tuesday night in senior boys basketball action at Chemainus Secondary School.

“We closed to nine by halftime, but let them get a 10-0 run to start the third quarter that hurt us,” noted Cougars coach Kyle Peruniak.

CJ Loranger was on fire for Chemainus with 31 points.

Mark Harris and Brayden Wolff had some highlight reel blocks, added Peruniak. Wolff also scored six points while Harris and Austin Webb had five apiece.

“Should be a good rematch on Friday at DCS in the semi-finals for the South Islands,” noted Peruniak.

Tip-off is 5:45 p.m. Brookes Westshore and Glenlyon Norfolk play in the other semi-final with a 7:30 p.m. start.

The tournament concludes Saturday with the third-place game at 2 p.m. and the championship game at 4.
