Guess who won all-Orillia Blackball battle?

Day Two of the 73rd annual Orillia Blackball Classic is underway

Day Two of the 73rd annual Orillia Blackball Classic got underway Saturday morning at all three local high-school gyms.

In an all-Orillia battle in junior division play, on the consolation side of the bracket, Orillia Secondary School fought off a Twin Lakes Secondary School surge in the second quarter and dominated the second half as the visiting Nighthawks ran away with a 62-37 victory over their cross-town rival. The game was a six-point game in the second quarter but a combination of Twin Lakes miscues and a resurgent OSS attack helped the visitors earn the lopsided triumph.

Action at Canada's longest, continuously-running high-school hoops tournament continues today and will culminate with the championship game for junior teams at 4:30 p.m., followed by the senior boys' title game. Both championship games will be played at OSS.
