basketball logo_3(ISN) - The Lambrick Park "AA" Girls and Brentwood College "AA" Boys continued their winning ways at the BC High School Provincial Basketball Championships Thursday.

The Lambrick Park Pride "AA" Girls basketball team will be advancing to the Senior Girls "AA" Provincial semi-finals after a 64-54 win over Archbishop Carney Thursday in quarter-final action.

The Pride entered the quarter-finals after an easy win the day before against Charles Hayes. On Thursday, the Pride struggled to score early, as Carney built a 7-0 lead in the first five minutes.  This would be short-lived however, as Lambrick's outstanding starter, Chelsea Strandland, sank three, 3-pointers in a row and executed some spectacular passing, with the Pride eventually pulling ahead to lead 33-22 at the half. The rest of the game saw Lambrick continue their dominance, notwithstanding having forward Tyger Holt foul out of the game. Lambrick Park won the game 64-54 with Chelsea Strandland from Lambrick and Colleen O'Melinn from Carney named as players of the game. Lambrick will now play Holy Cross in the semi-finals Friday night at 5:45 p.m.

In Senior Boys "AA" action, Brentwood College advanced to the semis after earning a tough 53-47 decision over Vancouver's King George.

After winning their first game Wednesday against Lambrick Park, King George showed their strength early by going deep into Brentwood's defense and fighting for every rebound. The Dragons also showed resilient defense sparking them to a first quarter, 17-11 lead. In the second quarter, Brentwood started to sink some shots but still couldn't penetrate into the Dragon's defense. Brentwood began to find their game in the third quarter and thanks to a strong performance by Jordan Charles and Austin Giles, they were able to rein in their opponents and move to within one point, 40-39, at the end of the third quarter. Brentwood continued their surge in the fourth quarter to overcome the #1 Vancouver-ranked team and take the win 53-47. Brentwood now takes on the Fraser Valley #1 ranked team, Mission, Friday night in the semi-finals.

In other Senior Boy's "AA" action, St. Michael's (SMUS) dug themselves a deep first-half hole and despite some second-half heroics from Joe Erlic, fell to St. Thomas More 65-54, bumping the Blue Jags to the consolation round.  Also, the Lambrick Park Lion's, losers Wednesday in their opener, toughed out a foul-plagued affair with a 72-65 win against Sa Hali. Six players in total fouled out of that game.  SMUS will now face Windsor, while Lambrick will now take on South Okanagan in their Friday consolation match-ups.

Also Thursday, Senior Girl's "AAA" action saw the Claremont Spartans get thumped by York House 69-39 in their quarter-final match-up, moving the Spartans to the consolation round.  The Spartans now join the Oak Bay girls in the consolation brackets after the Bays lost their opener Wednesday.  The Spartans face Yale on Friday, while the Bays, 85-57 winners over Mt. Baker Thursday, will play Handsworth in their continuing consolation round match-ups.

In Senior Boys "A" action, both Duncan Christian and Bella Bella won their consolation round games Thursday, with Bella Bella squeaking out a 67-66 win over Cedars Christian, while Duncan Christian dismantled Mountain Christian 80-35. Duncan Christian now meets Bulkley Valley, while Bella Bella meets St. John Brebuf in their Friday games.

The Junior Boys Provincials also got underway at Vancouver College Thursday and Victoria's Claremont Spartans were a big winner on opening day with a 65-40 win over Golden.  Nanaimo's Wellington also opened with a win, when they defeated Princess Margaret 54-27.  The Lambrick Park Lions were not so lucky however as they went down to defeat at the hands of Gleneagle 54-43.

Claremont will now meet Walnut Grove and Wellington will meet St. George's in quarter-final match-ups Friday, while Lambrick moves on to play Valleyview in the consolation round.
