The J.L. Crowe Hawks junior teams hit the hard court in high-school sports on Wednesday, with the Grade 9-10 boys team hosting L.V. Rogers from Nelson and the junior girl Hawks heading to Grand Forks to tip off against the Wolves.

In boys action, the Hawks got off to a great start, but ran out of gas in the fourth quarter as Nelson ran away with a 33-19 victory. However, the junior girls were ready for the Wolf Pack in Grand Forks defeating the home team decisively, 35-23.

The Hawks led early, and were tied with the Nelson 14-14 going into the second half, and trailed by four in the third. However, the Bombers exploded in the fourth going on a 10-2 run to take the match.

Meanwhile, the junior Hawks’ girls jumped out to a 16-point lead at the half and cruised to the victory over Grand Forks. The Wolves coach Craig Lindsay was satisfied with the teams effort, recognizing that Crowe has bolstered its line up.

“We struggled early against their pressure,” said Lindsay. “But Crowe has a pretty good, speedy team. They’re very aggressive, particularly on defence. With all the Rossland kids coming over, they’ve got a big pool to choose from. But we still should’ve competed better.”

The Hawks junior teams head to Osoyoos for a tournament this weekend, while the Senior basketball teams are in Vernon.
