The Colonel By Cougars are the NCSSAA senior girls Tier 2 basketball champions after downing the Cairine Wilson Wildcats 36-24 on Monday.

The Cougars jumped out to an early 8-2 lead only to see the Wildcats respond with an 8-4 run to narrow the deficit to two points by the end of the first quarter.

Unfortunately for the Wildcats, that would be as close as they would get. The Cougars extended their lead in each of the remaining three quarters. They led by five ponts after the second quarter, seven points after the third quarter and 12 ponts by the end of the game.

The Wildcats were their own worst enemies for much of the game commiting turnover after turnover. At one point in the second quarter, the Cougars stole the ball five times on six consecutive possessions.

The Cougars were also a lot more efficient when they had possession, led by Anchal Chopra who scored a game high 16 points, including eight points in the all important fourth quarter.

Zharia Gallimore led the Wildcats with 13 poiints.

Cairiine Wilson's junior girls basketball will get their chance to bring a city championship to the school when they play Sir Robert Borden later today.
