School squads in all-Surrey tourney prep for Friday semifinals at Enver Creek gym

Four of Surrey’s best high school boys basketball teams have advanced to the semifinals of the Surrey RCMP Classic.

The all-Surrey tournament will see Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir face Fleetwood Park on Friday at 5:45 p.m., followed by a battle between Newton’s Tamanawis and South Surrey-based Semiahmoo starting at 7:45 p.m. Both games will be played at the Enver Creek Secondary gym, 14505 84th Ave.

To get there, in a day with no real upsets, Tweedsmuir more than doubled Southridge on Wednesday (Jan. 16) by a score of 101-49, while Fleetwood Park topped Guildford Park 74-58. In the other bracket, Tamanawis cruised to a 101-68 win over Pacific Academy, and Semiahmoo edged Clayton Heights 79-78.

Winners of Friday’s semifinal games will fight for the tourney title Saturday night (Jan. 19) at Enver Creek, starting at 7:45 p.m.

In the Pool B championship game Wednesday, Frank Hurt beat Fraser Heights by a score of 56-36, with Ike Ewaka earning MVP.

The junior boys championship game is set for Saturday starting at 12:15 p.m., in a battle between Panorama Ridge and Queen Elizabeth. In semifinal games played Thursday, Panorama topped Tamanawis 60-52, while Queen Elizabeth took care of Elgin Park, 61-43.

The 28th annual Surrey RCMP Classic kicked off Sunday (Jan. 13) with 24 teams in action on opening day – 16 senior squads and eight junior. The tournament involves close to 650 student athletes in games played at school gyms across the city.

In the 2018 Classic final last January, Semiahmoo topped Tamanawis to win the senior boys championship by a score of 73-64. In the 2018 junior final, Tamanawis beat Lord Tweedsmuir.
