SATURDAY

IMG_5193IMG_5189Well, “almost” and “they did it again” come to mind. Kitchener St. Mary”s Eagles “almost” became the first Waterloo County team to win the Heinbuch as they jumped to an eight point lead at the end of the first quarter, extended the lead to ten before leading by six at half time. They still led by six entering the final frame before Toronto Oakwood Barons, led by the poised and experienced tournament MVP Calvin Epistola finally took a two point lead with three minutes to go on the way to a 57-52 victory.Yes, “they did it again” as Oakwood won the Heinbuch for the sixth time tying the most championships with the strong Toronto Runnymede teams of the 1980″s / 1990″s and have now captured the title for four straight years. Coach Miller, his staff and the young student-athletes can feel proud of this accomplishment.
