The championship game will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

In addition to some “really good games of basketball”, the event will feature a concession selling Jaffray’s famous “Taco in a Bag” for $6.00 to help raise funds for the upcoming Provincial tournament at the start of March in Langley.

The only remaining home basketball tournament following this weekend will be hosted by the Wild Junior Girls on February 16 and 17.
