Cedar Spartans split home games

Cedar Secondary School's senior girls beat Highland at home, while the boys lost in overtime.

The Woodlands Eagles and the Cedar Spartans played an emotional, physical contest Feb. 4 at the Cedar Secondary School gym, with the Eagles prevailing 84-76 in overtime.

The home team clawed back from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter and the Spartans’ Kurt Olson hit a three-pointer in the dying seconds to force OT.  In the extra frame, though, the Eagles created easier looks for themselves and built a solid margin of victory.

“We knew they had the momentum so we knew we had to match that intensity going into overtime and I think we did the job there,” said Griffin Douglas, Woodlands player.

Olson led Cedar with 25 points, while Josh Seward scored 24.

In the first half of the doubleheader at the Cedar gym, the senior AA Spartans girls crushed the Highland Raiders 82-20.

Marika Grubac scored 30 points and Shelby Dorman-Banks had 15.

This Tuesday (Feb. 11) the senior AA girls are scheduled to host the Mark Isfeld Ice at 5:30 p.m., then the senior AA boys host the Highland Raiders at 7 p.m. Cedar’s Grade 8 girls host the Nanaimo District Islanders on Wednesday (Feb. 12) at 3:30 p.m.
