Parkland Jr. Boys Basketball surges to 3rd Place.  The Jr. Boys basketball team won their third consecutive game on Monday night 53-42 over EMCS (Milne) in Sooke. The Panthers now are in sole possession of third place in their pool.  It was a dark and rainy night and the drive was over 90 minutes - but it was worth it!  Both teams played well in the first half and went to the locker room with a very close score.  But the Panthers came out on fire after halftime with a tough pressure defense and held Milne to zero points in the third quarter!  Not a typo - Zero Points!  The team built a 20 point lead and coasted to the win. Great effort by the team and also by the parents who drove for three hours round trip! 

Next up: Mount Douglas Tournament today against Carihi from Campbell River at 6:15 and then two more games on Friday. 

Big game at home on Monday 29 January against undefeated Claremont.  Tip-Off is at 4:15.  Come out and support the team in our last regular season game.  Make Some Noise! Go Panthers!
