Game 1 - Handsworth Royals vs. Riverside Rapids

Hosting school Riverside Secondary welcomed the Handsworth Royals on Day 1, but also kicked a little bit of butt, too! The Rapids drowned out their competition 75-31 with Player of the Game Jessica Parker scoring a whopping 36 points for her team.

Game 2 - Burnaby South Rebels vs. Whistler Storm

Game 3 - Argyle Pipers vs. Seycove Seyhawks

Both these teams came out with purpose, but it was the Seycover Seyhawks who wanted the W just a tad more than the Argyle Pipers. With outstanding defensive play, Seycove limited Argyle’s shots while easily sinking their own. The final score: 70-35. Jin Bowening was named POG.

Game 4 - McNair Marlins vs. Walnut Grove Gators

In the final game of the evening, the McNair Marlins were set to play the Walnut Grove Gators. Some say that the Gators are THE team to beat this year, so it was no surprise to see them come out extremely strong on opening day. With a dominant presence on both sides of the court, Walnut Grove picked up a huge win with a final score of 107-8. POG honours were given to Tavia Rowell who scored an outstanding 29 points.
