Vancouver, B.C. - In the 2019 3A BC Provincial Championship, the #2 Vernon Panthers would take on #9 North Delta Huskies. The first quarter would be a defensive battle as neither team was willing to give up an inch on their own end. Vernon hammered the ball inside while the Huskies would fire away from three. After the first frame it was 13-11 for North Delta.
The game would go back and forth, with the exception of an eight point advantage for North Delta early in the third. Vernon would charge back including a three by Trent Charlton to end the third quarter. The final quarter was action back as North Delta and Vernon traded baskets the entire quarter. Vernon would grab the lead with time winding down, but sensing his moment (again) after last night's game winner against North Delta, Suraj Gahir would go to work in the final minutes scoring two huge buckets including what would be the eventual game winner. A last second shot by Isaiah Ondrik of the Panthers would be on line, but hit back rim and bounce out as time expired. North Delta would celebrate the victory has fans rushed the floor for their 46-44 3A Provincial Championship victory.
