Vincent Massey Trojans to take on Oak Park Raiders for championship

  • Print

WINNIPEG — The Trojans of Vincent Massey Collegiate are only one win away from repeating as the Milk AAAA girls provincial basketball champions.

On the strength of 20-point performances from Ashleigh Chichlowski and Stephanie Kleysen, the No.-1 seeded Trojans rallied from a shaky first half to defeat Crocus Plains Plainsmen 69-49 Thursday night in one semifinal, at the Investor’s Group Athletic Centre on the University of Manitoba campus.

Standing in the way of Vincent Massey in Saturday’s championship final set for 6 p.m., at the IGAC, will be the No. 2-seed Oak Park Raiders, who knocked off St. Mary’s Academy Flames 50-44 in the other semifinal.

Jenilyn Monton 5-foot-4 guard scored 13 points (including three 3-pointers) to lead the Raiders while Sierra Bubb and Shana Solarchuk each had eight.

Alicia Ogoms was tops for St. Mary’s with 20 point while Darah Dobie added 10.

Monton said that the St. Mary’s pressure held them down, along with the fact they weren’t moving the ball as well as they could have.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s final, Monton is anxious to take on the Trojans one more time. "We played them four times and wewon once and they beat us three times, so we’re going to be a little hungry," she said.

The Plainsmen were led by Tia Coulter with 17 points and Josie DeGagne with 12.

Kleysen says Saturday’s final against the Raiders will be a pressure-cooker. "We’re coming back and we hope to win it again, but Oak Park is very competitive," she said.

The boys semifinals go tonight with Oak Park Raiders playing Sturgeon Heights Huskies at 6 p.m., and Dakota Lancers and St. Paul’s Crusaders tipping off at 8 p.m.

The boys final will follow the girls, Saturday at 8 p.m., again at the IGAC.
