April 12, 2019 (Brockville, ON)North Grenville District High School defeated Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) 27-21 on Thursday, April 11 to take the Upper Canada Cup Intermediate Boys’ Basketball Championship. 

North Grenville Coach Keith Kelsey was pleased to win the championship, hosted by PDCI, noting it was the first time his team had captured the title. 

“It was a great feeling,” said Kelsey of the win. “It was nice to finally play in the finals. To win it all has been a goal for a while.” 

Perth was up early in the game, taking an 18-12 lead at halftime. However, North Grenville managed to turn things around in the second half with some strong defensive stops that led to key transition scores and carried the team to victory.

A tight zone defense by North Grenville in the second half played a huge role in the win.  

Strong performances by Brock Verney and Gavin Paquette, and impressive rebounding by Sebastian Friedrich Yap, also helped seal North Grenville’s victory.
