Duncan Christian School boys rally at South Island Tip-off

After losing their opening game in last weekend’s South Island Tip-off Tournament at Pacific Christian School in Victoria, Duncan Christian School’s senior boys basketball team rallied to win their next two matches, placing fifth out of eight squads.

The Chargers led 41-29 at halftime of their opener against Ladysmith Secondary, but Ladysmith took over in the third quarter, outscoring DCS 20-8 on their way to a 73-68 victory.

Jesse Vanwingerden was the Chargers’ top performer in the loss, tying Mike Brandsma with a team-high 18 points, matching Adam Kapteyn and Johnny Caron with nine rebounds, and leading the team with six assists. Kapteyn also had 11 points, while Brandsma was one off the lead with eight rebounds.

The Chargers bounced back in their next game, beating the Oak Bay Bays 61-56. Adam Kapteyn edged brother Nick 16 points to 15, while Nick came away with 10 rebounds to Adam’s eight. Brandsma again reached double digits in points with 12.

DCS wrapped up the tournament with a 47-43 win over Pacific Christian, although they lost Brandsma to a wrist injury in the process. Nick Kapteyn provided more than half the team’s offence, putting up 25 points and adding 11 rebounds, while Adam Kapteyn grabbed nine boards and Caron had seven assists.
