Stettler Middle School defeated host Erskine in the final of the junior high girls’ basketball tournament Saturday at Erskine School.

“It was a defensive battle, but Stettler controlled the boards, which made a difference in the game,” said Stettler coach Kim Poapst.

“We were down 17-16 at the half, but spread out the offence and took care of the ball. It was a tough win and it could have gone to either team.

“We played some good defence on (Erskine’s) two key players. Stettler boxed out well when Erskine took some good shots, which was our major goal.”

Poapst said she was proud of the girls’ performance as Stettler Middle School improved its record to 9-4.

Up next for Stettler is a game against Big Valley this week.

The next tournament for Stettler is at Hunting Hills in Red Deer at the end of February.
