Izzy Forsyth and Tara Wallack each had 18 points in the victory, while Deja Lee had 15 and Nicole Pajic 13. Raushan Bindra had 12 points and was named the player of the game.

With the win, the Totems moved into the second round of the tournament’s Axe Division, and are set to hit the court Wednesday afternoon against Holy Cross. The game tips off at 1 p.m. at the Cloverdale Rec Centre (6188 176 St.).

The senior girls tournament continues throughout the week, and wraps up Saturday with the Axe Division championship game, set for 4:15 p.m. at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. The Ladder Division consolation-bracket championship is scheduled for 2:45 p.m. Saturday.
