By Roberta Aiken-The Skidegate Masters vs Metlakatla Alaska – with the greatest point spread of 8 points this game was to the wire all the way. Both teams ran into foul troubles and lost key players. The defending champions of 2006 managed to pull ahead and take the win with 4 points. Final score 60 – 56 for Skidegate masters. Russel Gladstone led the way with 23 points. Putting the Skidegate Masters up today (Thursday) at 2:30 pm. The game will be between Kincolith or Massett.
The last game of Monday was the Skidegate seniors vs Bella Coola. Unfortunately not too many details due to the time of the game, yet the Skidegate Senior Boys with pick up player managed to keep the pace up but not enough for the win. That put them down into the lower bracket They played again Wednesday.

the Masset Women’s team took a tough loss to Ahousat, 37 – 7. Mind you, the Masset women have quite the squad of very young players and took their loss gracefully. I said last year that this team is young and carries a lot of potential in the coming years. They played against LaxKwaalaams Tuesday in a knock out game. The loser of that game (not available as we went to press) will have to re-qualify in the November tournament.

Masset Intermediates vs Ahousat – a loss of 61 – 83 for the young guns from Masset, putting them up next in a knock out game to Hartley Bay Tuesday. Again, the loser of this game will have to re-qualify in the November tournament.

Massett Masters vs Gitwinkshilkw – a win for the squad from Old Masset. With Duffy and Willis running the floor for these guys, they managed to put up a good battle and establish a good lead of 20-plus points to keep them in the winners bracket.
They were up next against Kincolith Tuesday, the winner of that game will come face to face with the Skidegate Masters on Thursday.
Basketball action continues all week in Prince Rupert. We’ll have an article with more photos next week.
