It was a tight tournament for the Falcons Senior Girls Basketball team in Burns Lake on the Feb. 8 weekend.

The Falcons played three games, beating both North Side and Valemount to make it to the final game against Fraser Lake.

They lost the final game to Fraser Lake with a tight 49-37 final score, taking second in the tournament overall.

They managed this even with one player out due to an injury.

“They played really well,” said Coach Suzanne Burck.

Jocelyn Stark has an ankle injury she received during a practice and it is still not known whether her ankle will be good in time for the zones.

The tournament had teams from Valemount, Fraser Lake, Burns Lake, Vanderhoof (Northside Christian School), Smithers (Bulkley Valley Christian School) and Mount Currie (Xit’olacw Community School).

The teams are getting quite competitive, said Burck, as they prepare to vie for the three slots to move on to provincials. Provincials will be held in Lumby in the second week of March.

Ten teams will be meeting to fight for the three top spots at the zones in Bella Coola starting on Feb. 18.

Burck said Fraser Lake is the team to beat in the region, and Cedars Christian School of Prince George is the top-seeded team in the zones so far.
