In that contest, the Girls led Chestermere 17-14 after one and expanded the lead to 37-28 at the half. But the lead eroded to 48-46 after three. Chestermere rebounded to win the contest 65-62.
With one win and one loss, the Girls moved on to face Strathcona Christian on Friday. The Girls held a narrow lead through the first three quarters but widened the gap in the final quarter to earn a 72-51 win, and a spot in the consolation final Saturday morning.
The Wolves final game was against the Holy Trinity Academy Knights. The Girls advanced from a 19-19 first quarter stalemate to win the day with a 72-62 win and the AASA 3A Consolation Championship trophy.
