The Varsity Boys Basketball Sabres slugged it out with WC Miller in the Zone Final last night. The action was fast and furious. The score remained close until the 4th quarter when Cole Baker went off the chain hitting 4 threes and 3 layups in the last 6 minutes leading Sanford to an 84 - 67 Zone 4 championship win! Logan Schreyer led all scorers with 37 points, Charlie Major, Greg Zeaton plus JV callups Colby Hay and Aaron McCorriston took turns playing shutdown defence on the Aces best player. Logan Nyman and Zac VanWalleghem cleaned up the 4th quarter rebounds to seal the win.
Thanks to the Varsity Girls team and all the fans who came to cheer. Kudos to Will Johnson who spent the entire game in the Sabre mascot uniform.
The team now travels to Ste Anne for the Provincial InterZone playoff tonight at 6pm.
In last night's Zone 4 semi final versus Morden, the Varsity boys basketball Sabres roared out to a 15 point half time lead, however the Thunder chipped away and moved ahead with 3 minutes left. Zac VanWalleghem hit two free throws with point 3 seconds on the clock to give Sanford a thrilling 73-72 win. The boys move on to Zone finals in Altona on Thursday at 6 pm.
Unbelievable! Two games, two straight wins over SJR. Yes, our Sabres Girls Hockey team is going to the finals. With a fast paced, hard hitting game, our girls were able to hold a 1-0 lead until the last 10 minutes of play when SJR scored. Thanks to Melayna scoring her second goal of the game in the last 28 seconds of play, we were able to secure the win. Way to go girls! Next week off to the finals in Dakota. Congrats to the whole team on their total team effort.
