Action in senior NOSSA basketball is underway in North Bay for a pair of local schools, including the Korah Colts.

After a nail-bitting win over the St. Mary's Knights in the senior semifinal on Feb. 12, the Colts moved on to play the first place White Pines Wolverines two days later looking for a city title.

The Colts fell short early in the first quarter, but managed to fight back multiple times throughout the game.

By the fourth quarter, White Pines proved to be too much for the Colts, opening up a comfortable lead.

"We felt like we had a good shot going into the finals, afer a loss like that it just gives us more fuel to feed the fire over in North Bay at NOSSA" said Gaston Matilla, a Grade 12 gaurd from Korah.

"I think it's a great test of our willingness to bounce back and fight," Colts coach Anthony Iacoe added. "They are a great group of boys and I have no doubt that we will have a great week of practice leading up to NOSSA and take care of business".

The Colts were slated to hit the road for North Bay this morning as they look to bring home the NOSSA AA title. 

The senior team was slated to begin play on Monday afternoon against Lo-Ellen of Sudbury while the junior team was scheduled to face the Lo-Ellen junior team later in the day.

Superior Heights is also slated to play in the senior event.
