PCHS Sr Boys team travel to Louis St. Laurent tourney


Dec 15-16 the PCHS Sr Boys team travelled to
Edmonton to take part in the Louis St. Laurent
Tournament and squared off our first game
against last year's tourney champs, St. Joe's from
Grand Prairie.
It was a great game from start to finish as both
teams played strong and never let up but our
boys couldn't seal the deal in a 71-66 loss.
Friday night we came up against Beaverlodge
who the boys met last year in the tourney as well
and again this year we came out with a win in a
tight nail-bitter game of 68-67 win for PCHS.
That put us into the consolation final against the
big boys from Edmonton's Eastglen High School.
The game was tied at the end of the fourth
quarter to move us to OT and unfortunately the
Eastglen boys overcame PCHS in an 87-85 win.
Overall, it was great to see 3 tight scoring
games and to see our men fight to the end.
The PCHS Sr boys' basketball team heads into
the Christmas break with a record of 8 wins and
3 losses. Pacer's (Blue) #15 Jaden Crozier about to make the basket.
