The Kinkora Blazers started the third quarter on fire, scoring the first nine points, and never looked back Wednesday to advance to the Prince Edward Island School Athletic Association (PEISAA) senior A DOMINO'S girls final.

The Blazers defeated the Charlottetown Rural Two 45-38 in semifinal play.

Jill Lawless led the way with 26 points and 10 rebounds, while Maggy McGrath added seven and Briar Roberts four.

Christina Lourenso had 11 and Emma Bradley had eight to lead the Raiders offence.

Kinkora will play the Bluefield Bobcats Saturday at 2 p.m. in the gold medal game while the Raiders meet the Morell Marlins for the bronze at 10 a.m.

The Bobcats took a half to get going but strong rebounding sent them to a 44-33 victory over the Marlins in semifinal action.

The Marlins were ahead 16-13 at the half but a strong third quarter saw Bluefield move ahead 32-22 and cruised to victory.

Keira Coady led the Bobcats with 12 points, while Allyson Stewart had 10 points and nine rebounds, and Hailey Blacquire with nine points.

Molly Pendergast led the Marlins with 11 points, while Katie Gallant scored six and Emma Drake added four points and 11 rebounds.

 

Boys

The Marlins edged the Colonel Gray Colonels 63-61 in the barnburner of an A boys semifinal.

The Colonels led 29-25 at the half but three three-pointers in two minutes early in the third got the Marlins off and running and leading 51-39 after three quarters. But the Colonels responded to tie the game at 59 with 2:45 to play after a driving basket by Mark Buell.

Shane Pendergast put Morell ahead by two with two free throws with 1:47 left and Riley Berthiaume added a foul shot with 1:16 to go to make it 62-59.

Buell scored with 31 seconds left to draw the Colonels within one but a Pendergast foul shot with 11 seconds gave the Marlins a two-point edge and when Matt Hicken grabbed a miss with two seconds remaining for the Morell victory.

Pendergast led Morell with 19 while Ethan Craig had 18 and Hicken eight. Alex Hardwick added nine boards in the win.

Buell scored a game-high 27 for the Colonels while Omaro Sefau and Clay Corney each added 10.

The Marlins play the Blazers Saturday at 4 p.m. in the gold medal game and the Colonels play the Bobcats for bronze at noon. Both games are at Bluefield.

Kinkora earned their way to a gold medal final with a strong 68-50 victory over the Bobcats.

Strong rebounding and six three-pointers by Andrew MacCormack was the difference. Kinkora led from start to finish, 14-5 after first quarter, 27-14 at half and 48-30 after three.

MacCormack led the way with 25 for the Marlins while Logan Robinson had 12 and Sam Milligan added 10. For the Bobcats, Zack Denny had 18 and Josh Gallant 11.
