Will Casimir-Eneas was firing on all cylinders on Wednesday for the Princess Margaret Mustangs in South Central senior boys basketball action.
Casimir-Eneas scored 32 points to lead the Mustangs to a critical 58-53 win over the visiting South Okanagan Secondary School Hornets of Oliver.
The victory gives the team a record of three wins and two losses, good enough for a tie for second place in the league standings.
The Mustangs struggled to stay ahead of the Hornets in the first half, as the teams traded the lead several times.
“I think the change in the game came with a defensive adjustment we made at the half,” said Maggie coach Dan Van Os. “We switched from our zone to man to put a little more pressure on Oliver and we created some turnovers and momentum.”
Helping out the cause for the winners was Rowan Brown, who added 10 points, hauled down 11 rebounds and blocked six Hornet scoring attempts.
The Mustangs will be back in action Jan. 25 and 26 when they travel to Armstrong to play in the Pleasant Valley Secondary School tournament.
