Depleted Kondors crash against Wolves

Ward leads KSS with 22 points

A depleted Kwalikum Kondors senior boys team got clipped by the Timberline Wolves 72-60 in AA North Island League high school action at KSS on Thursday night (Dec. 6).

Head coach Taylor Wilson said they were shorthanded as three of his players — Nolan Lewis, Felix Westermann and Cody Shepard — did not suit up due to injuries.

It was the first loss for the Kondors, who just two nights ago opened the season with a narrow victory over Nanaimo Christian Trail Blazers.

Against the Wolves, the Kondors kept the game close and trailed just 36-34 at the half. In the next two quarters, the strain on the Kondors took its toll and in the end were not able to keep up.

Wilson was still happy with the way the Kondors played as they battled to give themselves a chance to win.

Leading the scoring for the Kondors was Logan Ward who had 22 points, including a trio of three-pointers, with Furkan Elcin banking in 10 points and Braeden Leary nine.

The Kondors compete at the Mark Isfeld Ice Invitational Tournament over the weekend and on Tuesday will be on the road to take on Ladysmith Secondary 49ers at 7 p.m.
