Timberwolves trim Sonics in exhibition

The Charles Bloom Timberwolves used a balanced attack to stop the Seaton Sonics 37-20 in North Zone senior girls exhibition basketball play Tuesday night.

Bloom had six of eight players hit the scoresheet, led by Jessica Salzmann’s 10 points and Jessica Fraese’s nine. Shelby Bauml dropped six points and pulled down eight boards.  Mackenzie Barrie sank eight points for the Sonics in Lumby.

Bloom coach Nathan Lee said the Wolves were sluggish coming off their home tournament.

“I thought that Jenna Knight played very well considering she’s had just one practice and seen no game action since before the Christmas break,” said Lee. “She is an athletic first-year player (hasn’t played since elementary school) at the senior level who has started to develop some confidence.

“Shelby Bauml is a six-footer who, once she starts to realize how strong she can be, will begin to dominate on the glass. Tonight, she showed some flashes with some great cuts and some more physical play in the paint.”

Meanwhile, the 13th annual Fulton Maroons Corporate Classic resumes at 9 a.m. with the Sa-Hali Sabres of Kamloops battling the Princess Margaret Mustangs of Penticton.

The eight-team senior boys tournament started Thursday with four games. Dale Olson’s Maroons face Sa-Hali today at 1:30 p.m. and finish pool play at 7:30 p.m. against the L.V. Rogers Bombers of Nelson.

The No. 3 (senior AA) Duchess Park Condors, South Okanagan Hornets of Oliver, Pen-High Lakers and the Westsyde Whundas of Kamloops are also entered. The championship final goes Saturday at 2:15 p.m.
