Crusaders in possession of third in senior hoops

GUELPH – The Lourdes Crusaders head into the break for exams in sole possession of third place in the District 10 high school senior boys’ basketball league standings.

The Crusaders won for the third time in 2019 as they downed the Guelph CVI Green Gaels 53-37 Thursday at Lourdes.

GCVI was without the services of the players who normally carry the ball up the court and that presented problems, especially in the first half.

The Crusaders took advantage as they jumped out to a 16-7 lead by the end of the first quarter and a 28-15 lead at halftime. Lourdes was up 44-31 at the end of the third quarter.

Kevin Martinez led Lourdes with 17 points while Geeth Kenneth had 13, Will Vandenheuvel nine and Sebastian Porcellato seven.

Aidan Carroll hit for 11 for GCVI and Rylan Ninaber had nine and Aiden Cvetich added five.

Centre Wellington Falcons lead the league at 11-1 and they are followed by the Centennial Spartans at 10-2, Lourdes at 8-4, St. James Lions at 6-5, Ross Royals at 5-6, GCVI at 4-7, Orangeville Bears at 2-9 and Bishop Macdonell Celtics at 0-12.
