camosunThe Camosun College Chargers men's basketball team kicked off their season openers with a perfect weekend against visitors Kwantlen University Eagles and Langara College Falcons.

On Friday, fourth-year veteran Blake Mansbridge led Camosun to a 97-92 win over Kwantlen with 28 points followed by newcomer Trevor Scherumann (Oak Park, Winnipeg) who posted 23. In his PACWEST debut, first-year forward James Blandford (Stelly's) scored 22 points and 13 rebounds.

Saturday's match came down to the wire with the Chargers coming back from a 10 point deficit in the middle of the fourth quarter to win the game 86-81. Second-year point guard Jordan Elvedahl (Stelly's) led the Chargers with 20 points while James Blandford came to floor with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

Blandford is currently No. 1 in the PACWEST league for rebounds and is tied in second place with teammate Blake Mansbridge for points, each averaging 19.5 per game.

On the women's side, the Chargers suffered a 74-69 loss to Kwantlen on Friday but picked up their game on Saturday to overpower Langara 63-34.

"We did not play the way we hoped against Kwantlen Friday night," said Head Coach Brett Westcott. "They are quick, aggressive and hardworking and they jumped on us early, but we dug ourselves out of the early hole and took a lead in the third quarter until three minutes remained only to see us throw things away again. Based upon how the game was played they worked harder than we did and they got the win they deserved and I hope that result does not create problems later in the season when playoffs get closer."

Coach Westcott added, "We did a better job Saturday against Langara. We had played them during our exhibition pre-season so we knew what to expect. We played well defensively, but offensively we were still stagnant for much of the first half. We just have to get better and continue to do so each week if we want to compete with the better teams in our league."

First-year wing Caitlin Marshall and wing/point returnee Aija Salvador led both nights. Marshall had a weekend total of 35 points (21 + 14) and Salvador totaled 28 (14 + 14).

The Chargers travel to the Mainland this weekend to take on the Columbia Bible College Bearcats and the Douglas College Royals. Catch the games LIVE on Sports Canada TV
