Earl Marriott Secondary’s Grade 8 girls basketball team got the season off to a fine start earlier this month, winning the first two league games of the season.

First, the Mariners overcame an early deficit to defeat their crosstown rivals from Elgin Park, 24-18. EMS followed that with a 23-21 win over Panorama Ridge that took double-overtime to decide.

The two teams were tied 18-18 after the fourth quarter – the game was tied six different times in the game – and the score remained tied after a fifth period of play. In the second overtime, EMS scored with 20 seconds before the final buzzer to win the game.
