The basketball season for Douglas College Royals and Andrew Baron came to a close last Thursday night in the quarterfinal of the Pac West playoffs.

Baron, a former Elphinstone player, was named the Royals player of the game with eight points, 11 rebounds and six assists in a 97-61 loss to Quest University.

Baron finished ninth in Pac West league scoring with 15.85 points per game, finished fifth in assists with 3.6 per game and was named to the second all-star team.

T-birds knocked out

The university hockey season also came to a close for Madeira Park's Joe Antilla last weekend.

The UBC Thunderbirds lost 5-1 and 6-2 to the Alberta Golden Bears in the Canada West semifinal. Antilla did not score in either game.

Junior hockey

Sechelt's Kyle Horsman saw his BCHL season come to a close on Saturday night.

The Cowichan Capitals only needed one point in their last regular season game to clinch a playoff spot, but despite a goal from Horsman, the Capitals lost 5-2 to the Victoria Grizzlies. Coupled with an Alberni Valley win over the Powell River Kings, the Bulldogs grabbed the last playoff spot.

Horsman finished the season with 13 goals and nine assists. The Capitals failed to qualify for the post season for the second straight season.

Sechelt goalie Blake Pearson, who started the season with the Bulldogs, was traded in November to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

He went 6-5-1 for the Glacier Kings, but has had a nice run in the playoffs, compiling a 3-0 record in their first round series win over the Saanich Braves.

Comox meets the Peninsula Panthers starting this Friday night in the second round of the playoffs.
