The Maple Ridge Ramblers boys’ basketball squad had another good week of play.
On Thursday, Ridge played at North Delta in what coach Ken Dockendorf called a poorly played game.
Down eight with four minutes to go, the Ramblers went on a 14-2 run, with Will Chartrand making two foul shots, Josh Solk hit a three to tie and Burke Brussow drained two to give the Ramblers a lead with only 11 seconds left.
Burke led Ridge with 23 points, and Tristan Coumont had 15 rebounds.
On Friday, Ridge played its first league game at R.E. Mountain in Langley and won 76-37. Every player on the team scored, led by Solk with 20 points, Brussow had 16, Stefan Halas, 11, Coumont, 10, and Colorado Zelinski and Kalesh Kumar with six each.
George Panagiotopavlos led in rebounding with 11 boards.
On Saturday, Ridge, a triple-A team, hosted the very strong quad-A team from Port Moody. The Ramblers were leading 32-25 at the half, but Moody played an outstanding second half and the Ridge defence faltered, said Dockendorf. The Blues won 73-62. Solk contributed 19 points, Coumont, 15, and Brussow, 13. Strong rebounding efforts came from Coumont, Zelinski, Burke and Chartrand, with six each.
