Men Kodiaks take positive strides

The men Kodiaks took some very positive strides on the weekend with a couple of impressive performances against the Briercrest Clippers.

After a grueling game on Saturday afternoon that saw many ups and downs the Kodiaks were narrowly edged out by the visiting Clippers 85-83.

The game was fast paced and exciting. It had everything you would want in a basketball game. There were multiple lead changes, clutch shooting and defensive intensity.

Unfortunately for the Kodiaks they found themselves just a single basket away from a much happier ending.

The Kodiaks showed their ability to bounce back at many points during the game and had some great performances by a variety of players.

Kodiaks’ player Sean McCormick continued his strong play netting 35 points in the loss.

McCormick has been impressive so far this season averaging 20.33 points per game and shooting just over 70 per cent from the free-throw line.

Friday night’s game against the Clippers saw the Kodiaks have a very impressive throughout winning the game 89-76.

The first half was tightly played but the male Kodiaks quickly took control and did not look back.

McCormick had a strong showing Friday night as well posting 29 points and 20 rebounds, a team best in both categories.

Ryan Heggie, Kodiaks head coach has been impressed by his team’s work ethic so far this year.

“We have a hard working group of players and it is showing up in the efforts from our younger players.

“They are getting better every time they take the floor,” Heggie said prior to the weekend’s games.

The Kodiaks will return to action on Jan. 13 on the road against the Lakeland College Rustlers.
