And the tournament continues...

Article by Megan Tran

And that's a wrap on Day 2 of LIT! The day started off at 12:00 noon with the Evan Hardy Souls playing the St. Paul Crusaders, and the Crusaders coming out with the win and a final score of 54-52!. The second game at 2:00 p.m. saw our very own Luther Lions go head to head with the Medicine Hat Mohawks! An intense game, but to the school's delight, the Lions pulled through with the win and a final score of 71-54. Afterwards, at 4:00 p.m. Luther Lions once again took to the court; but this time it was the Senior Girls playing against the Suns of Leboldus! The Lions who lost to the Leboldus Senior Girls before, went in to the game more determined than ever. The game was intense, the players gave it their all, and the fans were on their feet as they watched the score clock point by point. In the last two minutes of the game, our own Lions were able to score and win the Challenge Cup (50-47!).   Following the girls game the Campbell Tartans played the Garden City Gophers; the Gophers won with a final score of 90-66 and will now advance to the finals! To end the day was the last game at 8:00 p.m., with the Leboldus Golden Suns playing LCI Rams. What seemed like a tight match at the beginning, ended with the Suns and a 30 point lead by halftime. Despite the incredible fight the Rams gave, the Suns will join the Gophers for the final game of the tournament, after winning the game with a final score of 113-91! The night ended with the Social and the promise of LIT's last day ahead.
