The Fraser Valley A girls basketball team began their day with a 44-33 win over Vancouver Island-Central Coast Friday morning at Abbotsford Senior.

The notable teamwork and tough fight was clearly shown in the defence and offence. Lily Borseth of Fraser Valley was one of the quickest players on the team who had no intention of slowing down on the court after scoring basket after basket amounting to 17 points.

With the help of the opponent team, Fraser Valley girls had a lead of 33-29 with six minutes left in the game. Both teams continued to showcase an intense play up until the very last second of the game, with fearless blocks and quick action. Vancouver briefly closed the gap, but Fraser increased the intensity and came through with a 10 point win.
