The Pitt Meadows Marauders senior boys basketball squad will be playing for a Fraser Valley 3A Zone championship.

They will be taking on the G.W. Graham Grizzlies of Chilliwack on Friday night at 8 p.m., at Clayton Heights secondary in Surrey. It promises to be a close match, with the Grizzlies ranked seventh in the province as of Wednesday, and the Marauders ranked eighth. They have met twice before, with the Grizzlies winning 83-57 early in the season, and again on Feb. 5 by a score of 76-50 in league play.

Both teams have already punched their tickets to the provincial championships, and with high seedings based on their placement at the Valley tournament.

The Marauders had a big 81-79 win over the Rick Hansen Hurricanes on Wednesay night to get into the final game.

It was the third match-up between the two teams this year. The Marauders beat the Abbotsford squad early in the year at the Big Ticket Tournament. More recently, Hansen took a tightly contested league game.
