The North Delta Huskies are moving on to the semi finals after defeating Richmond’s R.A. McMath Wildcats.
The fifth-seed Wildcats were stiffer competition for the Huskies compared to the 13-seed G.P. Vanier Towhees, who NDSS beat Wednesday night 67-42.
The Huskies put pressure on the Wildcats in the first quarter, especially thanks to their three-point game, and established an early lead.
However, like in Wednesday’s game against G.P. Vanier, their opponents came back strong in the second, trading basket for basket. With a steal in the final seconds, McMath tied the game 44-44.
The score remained close throughout the second half, but the Huskies managed to pull ahead and punch their ticket to the semis with a 78-73 win.
The Huskies will face the first-seed Byrne Creek Bulldogs today at 5:15 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.
