The boys junior varsity basketball team dropped their opening game to Kildonan in a very close contest.  The Falcons struggled in the first quarter, unable to generate any offensive penetration and turning the ball over with several ill-advised passes.  However, the boys found their stride in the second quarter and began scoring points with the help of some inspired offensive play by Andrew, Chris I., and Chris N.  The Falcon defense proved to be very tough, led by the relentless speed and scrappiness of Sam, and they kept the game close despite some strong play from Kildonan.  Throughout the second half, the Falcons kept pace due in part to the nice shooting from Patrick, but Kildonan used their size and rebounding abilities to secure the victory late in the game.  It was a great first game, and the Falcons look forward to their next challenge.
