After cruising through to the Tier 1 junior girls basketball championship with wins over the St. Francis Xavier Coyotes and Louis Riel Rebelles, the St. Peter Knights finally met their match on Thursday in the form of the Sacred Heart Huskies.

The Knights spotted the host Huskies an 11-2 first quarter lead before they finally got untracked thanks to the hustle of Nathalie Skotnicki who had four steals in the final three minutes including two in the final minute which she converted into easy layups.

The Knights took their one and only lead of the game in the opening minutes of the second quarter on a basket by Michaela Brankner.

The score was still close with the Huskies up 20-18 midway through the second quarter when the Knights started to have ball control problems. Poor dribbling, poor passing and poor rebounding allowed the Huskies to go on a
5-0 run to close out the opening half.

The Knights' ball-handling woes continued in the third quarter allowing the Huskies to further extend their lead to 15 points, up 37-22.

They would go up by 17 points early in the fourth quarter, before the Knights tried to mount a late comeback. A 9-0 run cut the deficit to 43-35 and they eventually got to within five points, down 47-42, before they time ran out on them.

Skotnicki lead the Knights with 13 points and nine steals. Brankner added 10 points and five rebounds, Emilie Huneault had nine points, Veronia Lavergne had six and Margot Brown had four.

The Huskies' Chloe Browleee lead all scorers with 15 points, including eight in the third quarter.
