Sardis Falcons face Yale Lions for first

The Sardis Falcons and Yale Lions tip off tonight in a battle for first place in the Fraser Valley East.

The Sardis secondary school senior boys basketball team won a pair of weekend games to give themselves a shot at top spot in the Fraser Valley East league.

The Falcons edged the Chilliwack secondary school Storm 62-61 Friday night in an emotional game.

Logan Rogers led Sardis with 17 points. Jordan Vandrimmelen had eight and Jason Kroeker added seven.

Sardis downed Abbotsford Collegiate 64-54 on Saturday. Hayden Lejeune led the way with 23 points. Rogers had another solid game with 17.

The weekend wins gave the Falcons a record of 5-2 heading into a Monday night clash with Abby’s Yale secondary school (after Progress press deadlines).

The winner of that game finished first in the Fraser Valley East regular season standings.
