While White Rock Christian Academy and Walnut Grove secondary were duking it out for first place at the Legal Beagle AAA boys’ basketball tournament on the weekend, local hoops fans were likely more interested in Saturday’s bronze medal match.

The third-place game was a Tri-City showdown, with PoCo’s Terry Fox Ravens in one corner and Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Talons in the other.

Fox, which currently sits in first place in the Fraser Valley North standings and hosted the annual Legal Beagle tourney, managed to best the Talons, in a tightly played 68-64 game.

The Ravens showed off its young guns at the tournament, with Grade 10 point guard Jomari Reyes scoring a game-high 25 points in the third-place victory over the Talons. Teammates Travor Casey, meanwhile, managed to add 12 points in the victory.

Gleneagle’s Denver Sparks-Guest led the losing club with 19 points, while teammates Tariq Scott had 14 points.

White Rock Christian Academy managed to defeat the Walnut Grove Gators 86-80 to take first overall at the 24th annual Legal Beagle Tournament.

WRCA, which is ranked fourth, managed to outlast the top-ranked Gators, in double over time Saturday night.’
