Attack Swept in Tourney

The Oxford Attack Under 13 Bantam Boys competitive basketball team dropped 3 games to some strong competition in their home tournament. The Attack first played a re-match game versus the tall Stratford Revolution squad that narrowly defeated them in their last game. The game went back and forth through three quarters but the Revolution's overall team height was hard to overcome and the Attack fell 48 - 41. The Attack were led by Brandon Cowan's career high of 24 points including 6 out of 9 free throws. Quinten Quackenbush-Schneider also chipped in 4 points. The Attack's next rematch game versus the Ancaster Magic was a thrilling contest that had 7 combined three point shots made by both Grade 7 teams. The Attack led for the entire game until the Magic's full court press and timely 3-point shooting in the final quarter overcame the Attack and defeated the host club 52 - 45. Cowan continued his scoring pace with 18 points, while Ethan Roberts and Callaghan Bullen each chipped in 7 points. Hudson Holman and Carter De Jong helped control the backboards with 4 rebounds each. Cubby Dempster had two blocked shots. The Attack completely ran out energy in their final game of the day versus Brantford Rep and fell 53 - 24. Ethan Roberts had one 3-point shot plus 3 assists, Lucas Gagnon hit 2 free throws and Adam Bullen notched 2 rebounds in the Attack's low scoring game. Jacob Clark and Zachary Friesen's defense and overall court effort continue to improve each game for the Attack. The Oxford Attack player of the tournament was Brandon Cowan for his scoring and overall playmaking from his point guard position. Next up for the Attack is a sanctioned tournament in Brantford in two weeks. The Oxford Attack are hosting a fundraiser for the club on Wednesday, January 23rd. They'll be helping out servers at East Side Mario's, while earning a portion from the night's sales towards their team.
