Saints host zones

The St. Anthony’s Saints Junior A Basketball team hosted the 2J South Central Zones last Friday, March 1.
Tough teams, including Red Deer Lake, George Freeman School of Strathmore and Dr. Elliott School of Linden were invited.
The Saints first played George Freeman and were playing well.
“We were right there with them and were five points behind at halftime,” said coach Gavin Makse. “ In the third quarter, we were down only by nine.”
The team got in foul trouble, and a few breakdowns saw George Freeman run away with a 56-41 victory,
In the second game, they faced Dr. Elliott from Acme for third place, a team they had played before.
“It was disappointing not to beat Linden in that bronze medal game. We came out firing, we had a great start and were up 12-3 at the end of the first quarter, and were still up at halftime,” said Makse.
“The second half, our offence went stagnant and our defence had some miscues, and they capitalized. Before you knew it we were down. They made a couple of threes, and we couldn’t make it close again.”
This wraps up the season for the Saints, who will celebrate the season with a trip to see the Harlem Globetrotters.
