Cornwall’s St. Lawrence Secondary School Saints overcame a halftime deficit Tuesday to win the 2016 EOSSAA Senior Boys’ A Basketball Championship. After trailing hosts BCI 33 to 29 going into the third, the Saints rebounded for a 68-49 victory. The coach said a big reason for the victory was strong defence in the second half, which helped contain BCI’s star players.
Since the top two teams from the EOSSAA tournament qualify, the Saints and the Red Rams will now head to the OFSSAA provincial Boys’ A Championship in Sault Ste. Marie March 7-9.
