The Peacock Toilers kept rolling Tuesday night.
Peacock hasn’t played many games yet this season, but they looked like a well-oiled machine as they beat Central 76-32 in senior girls high school basketball play.
In the other senior girls game Tuesday, Vanier beat Assiniboia 50-43 in overtime.
Central beat Peacock 85-73 in senior boys action.
Toilers 76 Cyclones 32
The Toilers remained unbeaten in league play and are getting ready for a busy weekend of basketball when they and Central co-host the Moose Jaw Invitational Senior Girls Basketball Tournament.
“I think we’re just trying to continue to build,” said Toilers coach Renee Verge. “This is only our sixth game of the season. Many of the teams that will be at our tournament this weekend will be in the twenties by now.
“For us, every time we hit the court in a game situation we’re getting better because we haven’t played that much yet.”
The Cyclones grabbed an early lead, but the Toilers pressure and their ability in the paint helped them turn the game around. Amy Williams led the Toilers with 24 points, while Marissa Wilson had 10 points for Central.
Spirits 50 Rockets 43 (OT)
Vanier had a 12-point lead in the second half, but the home side in Assiniboia raced all of the way back to take a late lead.
In the final minutes both teams took the lead and traded points before finishing 41-41 after regulation.
The Rockets ended up having three Grade 12s foul out and that was too much for them to overcome in overtime as Vanier controlled the extra frame.
Katelynn Binner led the Spirits with 14 points, while Abbi Flanagan added 11 in the win.
Courtney Davies scored a dozen points for Assiniboia and Camara Miller added eight.
Cyclones 85 Toilers 73
In a rematch of Saturday’s Invitational boys tournament final, the Cyclones prevailed again, though they got pushed even harder by the young Toilers.
The Cyclones led 66-64 with three minutes left before they were able to break the game open in the late going.
The Cyclones boasted a balanced attack again as Dax Whitehead led them with 15 points, while Jonathan Phillips, Myles McDougall, Parker Chow and Zach Schutte each had 14.
Braeden Crone led the Toilers with 22 points. Riley Morhart added 14 for Peacock.
