School Athletic Association intermediate AA basketball championships on Tuesday night. The two teams battled back and forth throughout the game that had a noisy and appreciative crowd at the SIS gymnasium on the edge of their seats When the final buzzer sounded, the Owls celebrated a nail-biting 41-39 victory.
“That game was the pinnacle of the season for both of these teams,” said Owls head coach Sean MacDonald. “You have to take you hat off to Stonepark. They went undefeated this season, they are a terrific and well-coached basketball team.

The P.E.I. School Athletic Association intermediate AA basketball championships were on the line at Summerside Intermediate School on Tuesday night. Jill Power, 15, of the Summerside Intermediate School Owls drives to the basket while being defended by the Stonepark Tigers’ Katie Vidito in the girls’ final. Power scored the winning basket as the Owls pulled out a thrilling 41-39 victory.

“(Tuesday), we had to play a strategy to keep the ball to the outside, try to prevent penetration in the key and for us we had to win it on the boards.”
Jill Power scored the championship-clinching basket in the final minute as she grabbed a defensive rebound after a couple of Stonepark misses, brought the ball up the floor, drove to the basket off the left wing against two Stonepark defenders and calmly laid the ball in off the glass with 41 seconds remaining.
Power finished with 11 points and Paige MacLean led the Owls with 16 points. Sydney Lawlor (15) and Katie Vidito (7) were Stonepark’s top scorers.
“Everybody stepped up their game, and they knew what they had to,” said MacDonald, who described the victory as a “team win.”

To illustrate how close the game was, the teams were tied 7-7 after one quarter, 20-20 at halftime and the Owls took a 30-29 advantage into the final eight minutes. The Owls’ biggest lead in the game was four points in the second quarter, and the Tigers led by as many as five early in the fourth.
“We called a timeout a minute, minute and a half into the fourth quarter just to settle the kids down,” said MacDonald. “They scored four quick ones and we knew we had to stop it. “We just wanted to get the kids under control, settle down, go through what we know we can do and execute.”
MacLean was named the provincial championship tournament’s most valuable player.
“Paige is just a phenomenal kid, not only on the basketball court but off the basketball court,” said MacDonald. “She is the consummate team player, coachable, great kid and is so athletic. She does anything you ask her to do and more, and is as tough as nails.”

East Wiltshire defeats never-say-tie Athena Hawks in boys’ gold-medal match

SUMMERSIDE – The East Wiltshire Warriors did exactly what they wanted.

The Warriors capitalized on a size advantage, took control early, weathered a second-quarter rally by the never-say-die Athena Hawks and pulled away in the second half en route to an 80-55 win in the boys’ gold-medal game of the P.E.I. School Athletic Association intermediate AA basketball championships on Tuesday night.
“We felt prepared and knew what we needed to do, and for three-quarters of the game we did it,” said East Wiltshire head coach Duncan Shaw. “We are very proud of ourselves.”

Before a full house at the Summerside Intermediate School gymnasium, the Warriors jumped out to big early leads of 11-1 and 21-4. However, the Hawks refused to quit and closed the deficit to one point in the second quarter before the Warriors took a four-point lead – 36-32 – in halftime.
“You never count us out,” said a proud Hawks head coach Ian Lilly. “We may be small, but we are mighty.
“I have guys that work hard. I knew going in they were bigger and stronger, and I knew we could probably keep up for a little while, but it would be tough to sustain for the whole game. I’m proud of my boys.”
Shaw said the key to the Warriors’ game plan was to “be tall” against the Hawks.
“We didn’t want to get down and play with their speed,” said Shaw. “We wanted to get the ball inside, rebound well and keep a hand up on those shooters they have.”

School Athletic Association intermediate AA basketball championships at Summerside Intermediate School on Tuesday night. The Warriors defeated the Hawks 80-55.

Isaac Arsenault poured in 20 points to lead the Warriors, who received 15 from Thomas Yeo and 14 from provincial championship tournament most valuable player Tyler Newson.
Spencer Rossiter sank a game-high 35 points to account for over half of Athena’s scoring. Michael Friesen added six for the Hawks, who earned the respect of their opponents.
“You have take your hats off to Athena,” said Shaw. “They didn’t quit.”
Lilly admitted depth was a factor as the game wore on.
“We are not very deep, and I’m asking a lot of my five starters to play the whole game tired,” said Lilly. “We tried trapping and that got us back in the game, but then fatigue set in.”

Bronze medal
The bronze-medal game required overtime as the Summerside Intermediate School Owls outlasted the Queen Charlotte Coyotes 53-49.
The teams were tied 45-45 at the end of regulation time, and Ethan Haakman and Ryan MacKinnon scored eight points in overtime to spark the Owls.
Haakman (15), Nick Blanchard (12) and Will Somers (7) were Summerside Intermediate’s top point-getters.
Jeremy Norman (16), Paul Kingston (9) and Parker Williams (8) led Queen Charlotte at the offensive end of the floor.
Queen Charlotte led 21-20 at halftime.
