LANGLEY: Friday’s Night Final Four games saw teams advance to the finals with very close games and others not so close.

Tale Of The Tape:
” AAA”
This game saw both teams hold the lead at various points throughout the game. It was a game that could have be won by either side.   At the final buzzer, a missed last second 3 pointer by Sir Winston Churchill senior Amit Sekhon kept the defending B.C. champion Bulldogs 2 points behind. PoCo’s Terry Fox Ravens survived to win 70-68 and now will face Abbotsford’s Yale Loins.
The Lions beat out The Kelowna Owls  84-79 to advance to the big game tonight.
” AAA “
2East Vancouver’s Sir Charles Tupper Tigers beat out Prince Rupert’s Charles Hays Rainmakers 63-40 in the Final Four semifinals Friday  If The Tigers win tonight it will be their first BC “AAA” senior boys  title in school history. The Tigers will face Surrey’s Fleetwood Park Dragons, who also are in their first-ever final game in the BC boys senior basketball championships.
In Friday’s Final Four showdown Fleetwood Park had to work hard against Richmond’s R.A. McMath. The Dragons led from start to finish,  but had to defend a strong  4th quarter surge by the Wildcats, eventually beating  Wildcats 78-75.
” AA “
Victoria’s No. 1 seed St. Michaels University School Blue Jags have still not been tested. SMUS beat out  West Vancouver’s Collingwood Cavaliers 67-34  to advance to the Saturday afternoon final against North Delta’s Delview Raiders.
North Delta’s Delview Raiders showed true grit, pulling out a last-second 81-79 win over a very tough and talented Southridge Storm. Raiders superstar point guard Wowie Untalan scored 5 points in the last 8.9 seconds. He shot a 3 pointer from almost the center line and than with 4.4 seconds left stole the ball for an easy layup to put The Raiders up by 2.  What an effort by this young man! He was determined not let 2 missed free throws earlier in the game when there was only 15 seconds remaining and Delview was down by 2.. Untalan finished with 42 points and 9 assists in the win.
