District 10

Spartans, Bears get first-place showdown in senior hoops

GUELPH – The Centennial Spartans and Orangeville Bears have looked headed for a showdown for first place the entire District 10 high school senior girls’ basketball league season.

Well, that showdown’s upon us as the Spartans and Bears will clash Thursday at Centennial with the winner getting first place.

The loser will get second, although both could end in a tie with the Guelph CVI Green Gaels, but either one will win a tiebreaker with the Gaels thanks to scores of their victories over GCVI in the regular season.

Centennial defeated the Lourdes Crusaders Tuesday while Orangeville downed the Bishop Macdonell Celtics. GCVI was knocked out of the reckoning for top spot with a loss to the Ross Royals.
