The latest installment of the Kwalikum and Ballenas rivalry took place on Tuesday night as they battled it out at KSS.

The latest installment of the Kwalikum and Ballenas rivalry took place on Tuesday night as the lady Kondors and Whalers battled it out at KSS.

Both teams were back in action after the Christmas break and were looking to shake off some rust while looking to put another win to their names. On this night, it was the Whalers that came away with a 67-31 victory over KSS.

“We looked rusty, but we were able to get the job done,” Whalers coach Daryl Britz said after the win. “It’s always tough, for any team, coming off the break and trying to get back in to action. We had one of our starters out due to an illness and the rust was definitely there.”

Chelsea Hoey led the way for the Whalers with 23 points on the night, while her sister Makayla chipped in with 14 points. The Whalers were also without Sophie Palmer, who is a key contributor for the Whalers on both ends of the floor.

The Whalers will be looking forward to the first game of their tournament this weekend, taking place at Notre Dame (Vancouver). They will be up against the same Britannia team that denied them of a chance at the provincials last season.

“The girls are pumped for that game,” Britz said. “They’ve been very focused on this game and have been waiting for the calendar to come around for this one. So it’s going to be an interesting game for us. Hopefully we can maintain our composure and play the game that we can play.”

Following the tournament, it’s back to league action for the Whalers as they play host to the Isfeld Ice (Comox) next Tuesday, tipoff slated for 5 p.m.
