The Pitt Meadows Marauders senior girls have a shot at playing in the double A provincial basketball championships, after placing third as hosts of the Fraser Valleys tournament last week.
Only the top two teams from the tournament move on to the provincials, but the Marauders have won their way into a playoff game. They take on Whistler on Tuesday night in West Vancouver, with the winner moving on to the B.C. tournament.
They opened the Fraser Valley tournament with a tough 74-70 loss to Maple Ridge Samuel Robertson Technical on Thursday. “We had to come through the back door, and won some very exciting games,” said coach Kevin Severinski.
