The Morinville Orijen Bantam Sabretooths followed their City Championship win with a road trip to Calgary on the weekend for provincials. The girls returned to town with silver and the honour of being the second-ranked team in the province.

The girls opened play on Friday night with a 48-35 win over Peace River. In that contest, the girls advance slowly from an impressive 20-6 first quarter lead to a 34-14 lead by the half. Another two quarters of buffer gave the girls a 40-22 lead and a 48-35 finish.

Saturday saw the Sabretooths take on Northwest Calgary in the semi-final. The girls built from a 13-3 first quarter lead to come back from the half leading 22-9. Morinville continued to pass the ball and push the lead through the remaining two quarters to lead 30-18 and finishing 40-31.

The girls battled back in the gold-medal final against Calwest from a first quarter 20-9 deficit to losing the contest by just eight points — 47-39. The efforts earned them a well-deserved second-place finish in the province.
