Women’s Basketball on their way to Provincials
The women’s basketball team qualified for the RSEQ Division 2 provincial championships as they went 2-2 in the South West Conference finals to claim the fourth and final playoff berth.
The Islanders opened with a solid 80-51 in over St. Jerome Friday night at Abbott as Annie Pollender led all scorers with 25 points while Andrea Batrla and Kelly Corsi chipped in with 17 and 10 points respectively.
The action switched to Ahuntsic Saturday as the Islanders dropped a 74-57 decision to St. Jean. Pollender was the top scorer with 15 points. The Isles punched their ticket to Chicoutimi with a 79-40 win over Heritage College, with Pollender (19 points), Girlie Owusu (15) and Aaliyah Hamilton (10) all scoring in double figures in the victory.
Abbott closed out the weekend with an 85-63 defeat at the hands of the Montmorency Nomades. Darnelle Noel was top scorer with 20 points while Alexis Maniatis tallied 16 points and Pollender added 10.
Hockey Pushed Edouard Montpetit to the Limit
In a must win game at home on Friday night the Isles came away with a 5-4 overtime win. Hailey Burns had a hat trick and 2 assists, while Sara Levesque scored the overtime winner and potted 2 assists. This pushed the series to a deciding game 3 at Edouard Montpetit on Saturday night.
The Isles could only score once in the deciding game a goal by Jessica Bouchard in the third period but the Lynx already had a 3 goal lead. With the 3-1 loss the Isles season comes to a close.
Men’s Volleyball Season Comes to a Close
With a 1-2 record at the Conference finals, the Isles fail to qualify for Provincials. An easy win against Marianopolis (25-18, 25-18), did little to prepare them for what was to come. A driven Edouard Montpetit team came out and the Isles could not find an answer for the high hitting offence, losing 17-25, 21-25.
Now in a must win game against Montmorency the Isles fought back from an early 7-1 deficit to win the first set 26-24. The Nomades took the second set 19-25 to force a deciding third set with the provincial berth on the line. The Isles had the early lead and momentum at the side switch, up as much as 10-6, but the Montmorency team were able to capitalize on some untimely unforced errors by the Isles to take the match 14-16. Good luck to graduating players Justin Pemberton and Markus Nitka.
