Livingstone's Senior Boys Sabres basketball team hosted Fort Macleod's F.P. Walshe Flyers on the evening of Monday, 
December 15.  The game was fairly evenly matched, but the Sabres won every quarter and played and scored consistently throughout, keeping the pressure on at all times.  It was 44-38 at the half, and a weaker second half for the Flyers resulted in an 86-65 win for the Sabres.

Top scorers for the Sabres were Eric Cadonic with 28 points, Ross Cook with 21 points, and Brady Douglas with 12 points.  Top scorers for the Flyers were Jack Dietze (formerly a Halton Hawk) with 19 points, Shody Perry with 15 points, and Aidan Kidd with 14 points.  Cadonic and Kidd were named Players of the Game by the home and away coaches.

The Hawks Jr. A girls basketball team were able to continue the great start to their season under their veteran coach Wayne Hollander on Tuesday evening December 16 against Kainai. The Hawks earned a decisive wide-margin win.  They controlled most of the game, but had an amazing first half, only allowing 2 points and scoring 21 themselves. Most of the scoring came in an offensive burst halfway through the third. Leigh Erickson lead the team in points, scoring 14 points. Trinity Devine led Kainai with 6 points



Coach Hollander said “I'm happily surprised at the start we had, we just put in a new system of full court man-on man-defence which the team has never done before.  I'm very impressed with how quickly they picked it up."

The Jr. A Girls Hawks don't play again until after the Christmas break when they are scheduled to face their crosstown rivals the St. Michael's Dragons, and they hope to continue the great basketball they have been playing so far this season.
