The North Peace Secondary boys were unable to close out the North Central Zone Championship tournament.
Saturday at noon, the North Peace boys lost to Prince George Secondary by a score of 69-63. A victory would have seen North Peace win the entire tournament, but since it follows a double elimination format, the two teams will meet again Saturday night, to determine the winner of the Championship.
Prince George lead for the majority of the game, entering every quarter ahead on the scoreboard.

With Prince George ahead by two in the fourth quarter, four consecutive three point baskets gave them the lead necessary to close out the game with the win.
North Peace Secondary didn’t just suffer a loss on the scoreboard. Three minutes in to the second quarter, Brennan Ekalnd went down with a serious knee injury. After spending much of time on the ground, he was carried out in an obvious amount of pain and was taken to the hospital.
The championship deciding game between Prince George and North Peace will take place Saturday evening at 6 p.m. in the main gym at North Peace Secondary School.
