ORANGEVILLE – Emmanuel Christian Eagles claimed their second District 4 high school girls’ basketball championship title in as many days when they took the senior title Wednesday.

Tiffany Bouwers and Henrietta Thalen connected for 12 points apiece for Emmanuel Christian.
Dowdall had 13 points for Westside while Burnside netted eight.
The Thunder had finished first at the completion of the regular season with a 9-1 record while the Eagles were second at 8-2 and Westside had won both regular-season meetings between the teams — 31-25 in Orangeville Sept. 25 and 45-42 in Fergus Oct. 16.
