The coach added, “Despite that, we won some and lost some, but all games have been close and, with some hard work in the coming weeks and a few surprises up the coach’s sleeves, we have some good chances to finish in the top three.”

The junior boys played at South Kamloops Secondary on Wednesday. Their next games will be at Westsyde on Nov. 7. Look for results in a future issue of the Times.
