The Oak Park Raiders captured the AAAA high school varsity girls title by knocking off the Glenlawn Lions in a down-to-the-wire match up. Raiders complete the perfect season with the 71-65 win at the Investors Group Athletic Centre.
Josh Magpantay’s three pointer from downtown in the final minute of the boy’s final sealed the come-from-behind championship win for the Gophers and claimed their second straight provincial crown. The Garden City Gophers rallied back from a huge 24-point deficit against the 8th ranked Sisler Spartans in the second half of the finals. The Spartans dominated the first half of the game with a 59-39 lead at half-time. The Spartans were the Cinderella team of the tournament as they knocked off top seeded, St. Paul’s Crusaders in the semi-finals several days earlier. Fans from Sisler dominated the crowd at Investors Group Athletic Centre.
