The No. 4 Ranked Hillcrest Hawks are rolling at the 2011 OFSAA Boys AAA championships in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
In a quarter-final of the AAA championship at Niagara Falls, the No. 4 Hillcrest Hawks beat the No. 12 Jean Vanier Mavericks of Toronto 65-55.
The Hawks surged into their quarter-final with a 72-56 triumph over Holy Cross Crusaders of Kingston. Issack Egueh and Wajdi Abumengal scored 23 and 18 points, respectively, for the Hawks.
“My guys fought hard, and that’s one thing they don’t do is give up,” says Hillcrest coach Gary Monsour. “It’s nice to see a team like Sacred Heart was once ranked No. 4 in the province, so it gives us some hope. I mean, we can play with them, so I think we’ll be competitive with teams (at OFSAA).”
