Bball and Hockey Victorious @UCC

The U12 hockey and basketball teams traveled to Upper Canada College yesterday afternoon.  The hockey squad had a date with the Blues’ Grade 5 Hockey Team. The game was fairly even through the first 10 minutes with scoring chances being traded back and forth and both goalies making some solid saves. Late in the first frame Sharkey Chen lit the lamp after being set up by centreman Mars Sun. Chen then bagged another beauty early in the second to get things really rolling for the Cubs. Bert Wen then scored a gorgeous goal where he used his patented toe drag move before depositing the disk under the bar on the short side. Berty was back! We kept the pressure on with our hard working rookies Brayden Barton and Daniel Rauchwerger pressuring all over the ice. Our dominant power shift of Brayden Cox, Hannah Hurwitz and Luke Hristovski were effective in rolling around in the offensive end throughout the game. Defenceman Leslie Qiao then got into the act and scored the next three goals to cap a 6-3 victory for the visitors. George Zhou and Jayin Vohra were both steady in goal when called upon.

The basketball game was an amazing team effort. Jay Codron led the way with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Romeo also chipped in with 12 points. Johnny Musson and Fraser Bryant crashed the boards with 12 rebounds and 6 points while Ryan Michaels, Noah Kassam, and Griffyn Morgan led the defensive charge with 11 steals combined. Griffin Brown played amazing, making his debut after an injury. Mikel, Daniel and Eddie splashed some long bombs to help separate the score. The Crestwood Cubs are on a roll as they haven’t lost a game this season. Final Score 53-14. Lets Go Cubs!

Both teams travel to Royal St. George’s College on Tuesday as the schedule wraps up until the New Year.
