St. Mary’s was the site of one of the most exciting boys basketball games of the season. Medicine Hat High Mohawks (2) went up against St. Mary’s Colts (3). The Mohawks won the regular season game 51-45 so both coaches knew it was going to be a close battle. The Colts were up by one late in the game, but the Mohawks sank a bucket with half a minute to play and couldn’t respond. MHHS took the semi final 45-44. The Mohawks were led by J. Howe’s 14 points, while Chayce Davies had 18 for the Colts. Gabe Dael had 14 for the Colts including two buckets from three point land. Davies was having a strong game but had to sit most of the fourth quarter. After receiving his third personal foul he said something to the official about the call and received a technical foul. He did receive his last foul late in the game preventing a Mohawk player from scoring on a breakaway.
The Mohawks will move on to play the power house Notre Dame Dawgs on Thursday for the league championship. Its going to be an uphill battle as the Dawgs have dominated the league all season. The Colts will move on to the bronze medal game and will play Crescent Heights Vikings.
