Aldergrove Totems narrowly win game 2

Totems senior boys won their second game at the DW Poppy basketball tournament

The Aldergrove Community Secondary School (ACSS) Totems senior boys have won their second game at the DW Poppy basketball tournament.

The ACSS Totems Varsity boys basketball team came up against Samuel Robertson Technical Titans in game two of the DW Poppy Tournament and came away with a close victory.

After beating DW Poppy handily in game one this game was a tough back and forth battle all game long.

The first quarter saw the Titans come out flying, getting easy transition buckets on the slow Totems’ defence. Jacob Kautzman (11 pts., 14 reb.) was able to use his strength and size in the opening ten minutes. The end of the first quarter saw the Titans with a 22-11 lead.

The second quarter wasn’t much better for the Totems’ offence. Grade 10 Spanish exchange student Marc Montero (7 pts., 6 stl., 3 reb.) was a spark off the bench and was able to help the Totems tie the Titans 15-15 in the second quarter.

Still, the Titans led 37-26 at half time.

The Totems came out flying in the third quarter. Grade 12 forward Liam Bishop (15 pts., 6 reb.) helped solidify the Totems offence by dominating the low post all quarter long. He help the Totems outscore the Titans 25-10 in the quarter.

The Totems led 51-47 going into the final quarter.

The fourth quarter was back and forth until the final buzzer. Grade 10 U’Shaun Campbell (10 pts., 17 reb., 5 ast., 5 stl.) stepped up after two teammates, Kautzman and Nick Murray (16 pts., 4 reb., 4 ast., 4 stl.) fouled out of the game with pivotal minutes left in the game.

After a basketball by Campbell put the Totems up 66-65 the Titans got the ball back with eight seconds to go. On the final possession the Totems were able to contest the shot by the Titans and saw the ball go in the basket but pop out at the buzzer.

The Totems won the game 66-65 and earned their spot in the final against Credo Christian.

Final scores were ACSS Totems 66 (11-15-25-15), Samuel Robertson 65 (22-15-10-18).
