Despite a 10-day layoff between senior boys basketball games, the Cowichan Secondary Thunderbirds showed no signs of rust as they easily defeated the Alberni District Secondary Armada 72-45 in Duncan on Tuesday.
Josh Charles showed his versatility all over the floor, pacing the offence with 23 points, shooting 4-for-7 from three-point range, and adding 11 rebounds. Tyler Hudson contributed 12 points and seven boards. Braydon Aumen and Travis McDonald scored nine points apiece, and Aumen had a team-high five steals. Jordan Frost grabbed 12 rebounds to go with his six points.
The T-Birds outscored the Armada in every quarter, dominating in particular the first and third quarters, 15-5 and 18-7 respectively.
Cowichan is competing in the Pitt Meadows Air Show Tournament this weekend, and will play host to G.P. Vanier next Tuesday.
