FREDERICTON, NB (August 11, 2018) – The 2018 15U and 17U Women’s National Championships concluded today in Fredericton with British Columbia earning the 15U championship over Ontario by a 65-56 margin, while Ontario captured the 17U championship over Quebec by a score of 67-56.
British Columbia was led by Izzy Forsyth and Tara Wallack, who each scored a team-high 13 points, while Forsyth secured six rebounds and a pair of steals for her team in the victory. Ontario was led by Izabella Zingaro, who put up a game-high 15 points.
It was a slow start for British Columbia to begin the game, as they had trouble getting past a staunch Ontario defence while the second quarter was much of the same. Ontario controlled the boards, found their way to the foul line consistently, and extended their lead to 32-18 heading into the second half.
However, British Columbia attacked the paint with purpose in the second half and quickly brought themselves back into the heading into the fourth quarter. Ontario’s foul trouble quickly caught up with them in the final frame, allowing British Columbia to stop the clock and take an eventual lead where they ultimately ended the game with a 65-56 victory.
