The Lions got off to a quick start and never looked back, leading 28-5 after the 1st quarter and 57-10 at halftime. It was a complete team effort on both the offensive and defensive end, with every player getting on the scoresheet.

Special shout-out to John Alpacar who recorded his first double-digit scoring performance with 10 points and Chadwell Knight-Seucharan who made several big blocks in the 2nd half. Jacob Mahon-Tucci showed some playmaking ability late, with a couple impressive finishes and several nice assists.

This past weekend, our Sr. Prep Girls basketball team traveled to Ottawa to take on a much improved Louis Riel squad, and a very tough Capital Courts Acadamy. After a slow start versus Louis Riel, our girls picked up behind the stellar play of Tasha Lattimore who finished the game with 29 points. Aaliyah Edwards was the catalyst for a convincing win versus Capital Courts. She finished with 28 followed by 17 from Jadaia Ried who caught fire from behind the three-point line. Final scores were 93-59, and 92-74. Crestwood returning home 2-0. Come out and show your support Crestwood!!!!
The Crestwood Junior Boys Prep basketball team started their season 2-1 over the weekend at the OSBA Jr Challenge session hosted by Durham College. In Game 1, the boys lost a hard fought game 74-68 to TRC Academy out of Brantford. The Lions got off to a slow start but were able to pull within 3 points twice late in the 4th quarter. However, their comeback attempt ran out of time.
In Game 2, the Junior boys defeated Bill Crothers 75-53. The game was a tight contest until the Lions broke the game open with a 26-6 4th quarter run. Game 3 saw the Lions defeat Holy Cross 73-59. The boys pushed the lead to as much as 30 points in the 4th quarter before Holy Cross made a small run in the final minutes. Over the course of the weekend, it was great to see the boys get more comfortable and confident with their teammates, while also making big improvements on the defensive end.
Matai Baptise averaged just under 20 points per game in the three games, with a high of 28 points in game 1 against TRC Academy. Mikkel Tyne and Jamarion Carter both averaged 13 points per game, while Kailon Nicholls added 8 points per game while locking down the opponents’ best players all weekend.
