Maple Ridge Ramblers place third in the Fraser Valley

The Maple Ridge Ramblers will be going to the triple-A boys basketball B.C. Tournament as the third seed out of the Fraser Valley.

The Ramblers played six games in eight days starting last Saturday, Feb. 22, in a double knockout format. Their first game of the Fraser Valley was a 79-53 win over Clayton Heights

Next up was North Delta, which defeated Ridge 58-53.

So the Ramblers faced win-or-go-home games for the rest of the tourney.

They beat Princess Margaret 59-39, then Sullivan Heights 70-52.

The game to go to the B.C.’s had Ridge facing its nemesis, North Delta, again. In a highly competitive game, the Ramblers defeated No. 6 team in the province 56-53.

The final saw two very tired teams, and Maple Ridge defeated local rival SRT 47-39.

First team all-star Ethan Coumont led the Ramblers by averaging 27 points, 11 rebounds, and seven recoveries per game. The defensive effort was led by Isaac Halas and Owen Stewart. The rebounding and defensive size came from Rav Rakhra, Jackson Murdoch and Brad Bolton.
