MacPherson games draw large crowds
by SJHS Webstaff - Wednesday, February 18, 2009
The Saint John High Greyhounds hosted the Saint Malachy's Saints in the 25th annual David MacPherson Memorial basketball games last Thursday night. The games are played each year in honour of David MacPherson, a former student at Saint Malachy's and teacher/coach at Saint John High. Funds rasied from the game go the David MacPherson scholarship funds at each school.
Ainslie Oland netted 19 points and Lisa Breen added 10 for the Greyhounds in a 58-49 win over the Saint in girls varsity action. Leanne Davis paced Saint Malachy's with 15 and Newman added 11.
Saint Malachy's downed Saint John High 61-58 in the boys game. Kevin Wilson paced the winners with 31 while Pat Craig scored 14. James Cosman scored 15, Christian Beckett 14, and Chris Tilley 10 for the Hounds.
