Smiths Falls DCI RedHawks Play in Final at
EOSSAA Junior Boys’ AA Basketball Championship

(Smiths Falls) - It was the slimmest of defeats – just one point.

The hosting Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) RedHawks advanced to the final Friday at the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (EOSSAA) Junior Boys’ AA Basketball Championship, only to lose 31-30 to the Crusaders from St. Mary Catholic School.

RedHawks coach Todd Spencer said the usually strong SFDCI defence stumbled in the first half.

“We allowed 22 first-half points - not typical of our strong defence,” said Spencer. “There were too many turnovers and breakdowns. Our shooting was also off.

“I'm proud of our resilience and will shown in the second half. We never quit. But we needed our best game for all 32 minutes.”

Spencer also gave credit to the Crusaders, who he said were well-coached and had a strong desire to win.
