MAPLE RIDGE – The sting of two losses earlier in the day was no doubt soothed for the North Dundas Devils in an afternoon takedown of the Dundas County rival Seaway Spartans.
On the hardwood at the Maple Ridge-based school Tues., Oct. 29, the Devils offence looked outsized against the Spartans, as North Dundas rolled to an eventual 42-17 win.
Points were spread throughout the roster, as nearly each member of the Devils’ squad found themselves on the game’s scoresheet.
It was the shot of adrenaline the Senior Devils needed after a morning drubbing at the hands of the Holy Trinity Falcons, who took down North Dundas 55-32.
The Sarsaroudi sisters paced the offense for the home squad, with Ellie totalling 14 and Giota collecting 12.
Britney Barkley had a four-point game and Delaney Halpenny netted two.
The Junior Devils also welcomed the Falcons in a pre-lunch match.
Despite a 12-point effort from Paige Hannaford and 10 from Mckenzie Reid-Stevens, North Dundas lost a nail biter 37-34.
Mckenzie Baron, Chayce Hyndman, and Olivia Kelly had four points each in the Devils loss.
Each squad was back on the court yesterday (Tues., Nov. 5) at La Citadelle in Cornwall.
The juniors’ record was 3-4 heading into game action with the Patriotes, while the seniors’ mark was 3-5. Wins for each club would have settled them in fourth place in SD&G, priming each for playoff action.
Round one of the post-season for the Senior Devils is likely to go ahead Friday (Nov. 8) at Holy Trinity in the Seaway city, while the Junior Devils are to open game play tomorrow (Thurs., Nov. 7) at Char-Lan against the Crusaders in Williamstown.
