The Maple Ridge Ramblers senior boys’ basketball squad started their season with a third-place finish in the Enver Creek Tournament in Surrey.

In their first game on Thursday, Ridge played D.W. Poppy, defeating them 58-29. The Ramblers were led by outstanding team defence, and the scoring of Ravjot Rakhra and Ethan Coumont, each with 16 points, and the defense of Owen Stewart.

On Friday, Ridge was defeated by MEI of Abbotsford 60-44.  Ridge trailed only 40-34 at the end of three quarters, but the Eagles took the game over in the fourth quarter.

Ridge was led by a double-double of 18 points and 16 rebounds from Coumont.

In the third-place game against Centennial of Coquitlam, the Rambler defence was again outstanding, limiting the Centaurs to seven points in the first quarter and 19 at the half.  The final score was 53-40.

Leading the Ramblers was tourney all-star Coumont, with 28 points, 12 rebounds and 13 recoveries. Dominik Hartz also had 11 rebounds, and the Rambler defense was led by Jackson Murdoch, Isaac Halas and Stewart.
