Junior boys end basketball season with a victory

Loranger holds the hot hand with 26 points

Chemainus junior boys Cougars ended the basketball season in fine fashion.

Chemainus posted a 48-45 win on its home court over Brookes from Shawnigan Lake in an additional exhibition game arranged after both teams had completed regular season requirements.

“It was nice to end the season on a high note,” conceded Cougars coach Graeme Arkell.

“Defensively, the boys were very strong at getting in lanes and denying the opponents’ fast breaks.”

The most valuable player of the outing was C.J. Loranger, who amassed 26 points. His speed, fake passes and shots confounded the opposing defenders.

Mark Harris also had a strong showing, putting 10 points up on the scoreboard.
