The Gloucester Wolverines were two-for-three in the medal department on the weekend, winning one silver and one bronze medal at the Gloucester-Cumberland Basketball Association's annual Junior Boys Invitational Tournament.

The Wolverines' U14 Major Bantam 'A' squad was the only host team that made it through to they finals which they accomplished after crushing Nepean 63-36 in the semis. Unfortunately in the gold medal game, they came up against a team from Montreal that managed to stay a couple of baskets ahead of them through the entire contest.

The Brookwood Bullets jumped out to a 21-13 first quarter lead and then just maintained their advantage through the remainder of the game. They led
43-35 at the half, before eventually going up by 13 to win 78-65.

Team manager Cara Curtis said the Wolverines were competitive throughout the game, they just couldn't find a way to close the gap. Teddy Dumont was the team's top scorer with 18 points, while Sebastien Joachim and Yan Omanyundu-B added 10 points each.

After losing to the Ottawa Celtics in the semi-finals, the Wolverines U14 Major Bantam AA squad managed to bounce back in the bronze medal game by downing the West Island Lakers 75-47. The entire team contributed to the win with all 12 players getting in on the action

The Wolverines now have a perfect set of medals having won silver at the Chris Paulin Memorial Tournament in Kanata in December and gold at
St. Bruno Cougars Tournament last month.

The Wolverines had a shot at a third medal in the U12 Major Atom 'A' bronze medal game but they came up short against the West Island Lakers.

The Gloucester-Cumberland Basketball Association will be hosting their annual Senior Boys Invitational Torunament the first weekend in April. Competition will take place at the U15 Midget AA/AAA level and the U16 Major Midget A/AA and AA/AAA levels.
