Great second place by the St. Anthony's Saints.
Last night, St. Anthony's hosted their 2018 St. Anthony's Jr. 'A' Boys Invitational Basketball Tournament. The boys brought what they could but lost for the first place setting to Calgary Academy.
The final resulted in a 72-24 loss for the Saints.
"What we could have done differently is move the ball around more and look for those better passes," explained Saints player, Teigan Sattler. "Second place is good. We went up against a pretty good team from Calgary. I think we did really well for our size."
"I feel like we could have maybe won the game. They were a big team and had many more kids," said Saints player, Daxton Mulgrew. "I think if we gave our all and everyone was on their A-Game we might have won that game."
The boy's team did defeat Airdrie 78-21 and Rundle Academy 40-19.
"We had some great sportsmanship," said Sattler. "We were helping some other kids up. Even if they didn't want it, we were still trying to offer it."
