The second-ranked Kelowna Owls came up just short against No.1 -ranked Walnut Grove in the final of the Legal Beagle senior boys basketball tournament.

In Saturday’s championship final at Terry Fox, the Gators outlasted the Owls 68-64.

The Owls couldn’t pull out the win but have closed the gap considerably on Walnut Grove, who defeated KSS a month earlier by 21 points in the final of the Tsurmura Basketball Invitational

KSS won its first three games of the Legal Beagle tournament rather handily, defeating Semiamhoo 90-63, Oak Bay 68-47 and Tamanawis 94-67 in the semifinals.

Two Owls, Mason Bourcier and Owen Keyes, were named to the tournament’s first all star team, while Matt Williamson was named to the second.

This weekend, KSS will head to Abbotsford for the annual Snowball Classic.

In their second game, the Owls lost to the high-powered Brookswood Bobcats 98-62. Player of game Kennedy Dickie led KSS with 19 points and eight boards, while Hare had 12 points and five rebounds.
