It's the Bronze Medal Game Tonight

Well, it was a tough game, but Kelly's basketball team, the Westdale Warriors, came up just short in this morning's semi-final game at the OFSAA tournament. They lost 47-37 to top-ranked St. Thomas Moore, also from Hamilton.

So that means they'll be playing for a bronze medal tonight at 6 pm against the loser of the other semi-final between the third Hamilton team in the tournament, St. Mary's and Sarnia's Northern Collegiate.

It's been a great tournament. But today, Westdale was a little flat in the opening minutes, giving STM the early lead they needed. While Westdale outplayed STM in the second half, they couldn't score and take advantage of STM's mistakes. So that 10 point early lead held up right to the end.

Tonight's game should be good one, as Westdale has got something to prove to its fans. They could have beat STM if they had played the way they did Friday night. So I'm hoping that's the team that shows up tonight.
