Condruk scores winner as GFSS junior girls beat BCSS

GFSS junior Wolves win first game over Boundary Central from Midway.

Daisy Klassen of the GFSS junior Wolves goes up for the lay-up against BCSS during Monday night's game.

After building up a 16-7 lead in the second half over Boundary Central (BCSS) at home Monday night, the Grand Forks Secondary (GFSS) junior girls had to rely on a late basket from grade 10 guard Alaina Condruk to the get the win.

The junior Wolves pulled out to the lead using strong pressure defence and some driving lay-ups. However, in the second half the plucky Roadrunners from Midway fought back and managed to tie the score late in the fourth quarter 18-18. GFSS guard Daisy Klassen scored to put the Wolves up 20-18. Condruk then scored to push the Wolves up by four, 22-18. Nevada D. scored a late hoop to bring the Roadrunners to within a single basket but strong defence sealed the win for GFSS.

“It was a good win,” said GFSS coach Craig Lindsay. “The girls really worked hard as a team and showed a lot of determination. It was nice for our grade nines and 10s to get a chance to play against players their own age.”

Lindsay said that due to small numbers GFSS has had to combine our juniors and seniors and mostly play senior games and tournaments.

Leading the way for Grand Forks in the game were Klassen with nine points and Condruk with seven.
