Canada Summer Games: August 3 Recap

Mark it down as ‘W’.

The Northwest Territories Men’s Basketball Team managed to pick up a win for the first time since the Canada Summer Games began recording online records in 2009.

The 84-68 victory over the Yukon team was carried by a strong first quarter, with the NWT boys able to hold off in the second half for the win.

Head Coach Aaron Wells spoke post-game:

It’s a big accomplishment for us, I know the coaches were thinking about it a lot. We’ve been working together for 4 years and we were hoping to beat a province. We unfortunately couldn’t do that but to come off of this tournament with a win is special. I’m proud of these guys.

Team NWT Track and Field standout, Skylar Horton, gets all of the focus today.
