It is down to the final four in all four tiers with three No. 1 seeds still in contention for a blue banner.
In the 1A tier, Langley’s Credo Christian overcame a slow start to rebound and knock off the No. 8 Glenlyon Norfolk Gryphons 76-65.
Up next for the Kodiaks is a semifinal contest with No. 4 Heritage Christian. The Saints were big winners over the No. 5 Khalsa School Lions, beating the Surrey team by 30, 88-58.
The other semifinal pits the No. 2 Similkameen Sparks — who held off the No. 10 King David Lions 90-79 — and the No. 6 Bulkley Valley Christian Royals. The Smithers school upset the No. 3 Kelowna Christian Knights 63-54.
The semifinals tip off at 3:30 p.m. on the centre court at the Langley Events Centre.
The biggest tier in the province has also seen the most higher seeds fall as one semifinal will feature the No. 2 Tamanawis Wildcats and the No. 6 Semiahmoo Totems — a pair of Fraser Valley rivals — while the other pits the No. 8 Burnaby South Rebels and the upstart Belmont Bulldogs, the No. 13 seed.
The Bulldogs held off a late charge from the No. 5 Vancouver College Fighting Irish, who had the lead down to less than a point and had the ball in the final minute, but could not capitalize, with Belmont icing the game from the free throw line.
Belmont will look for a third-straight upset, but instead of facing the tier’s No. 1 seed, they draw the No. 8 Rebels. Burnaby South was up big early, only to see the top-ranked Oak Bay Bays go on a huge run of their own to take the lead, before the Rebels had another run of their own to win by eight, 86-78.
In the bottom half of the draw, the Totems won by 19 over the No. 14 Holy Cross Crusaders, 83-64.
And the No. 2 Tamanawis are the highest remaining seed but they had the closest quarter-final game, holding off the No. 10 Walnut Grove Gators 63-60, behind 26 points from player of the game Miguel Tomley.
The semifinals get underway in the LEC’s arena bowl with the games at 7 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.
Just like the 1A draw, the No. 1, 2, 3 and 6 seeds remain in contention.
The top-ranked Byrne Creek Bulldogs survived a scare against No. 8 Sir Charles Tupper, prevailing 68-57.
Next up for them is the Fraser Valley champion North Delta Huskies as the No. 4 seed edged the No. 5 R.A. McMath Wildcats 78-73.
The other semifinal is the No. 2 South Kamloops Titans and the No. 6 Pitt Meadows Marauders.
The Marauders won by 20 over the No. 14 Richmond Colts, 84-64 while the Titans were 62-44 winners over No. 7 Duchess Park.
The semifinals will begin in the arena bowl at 3:30 p.m.
Four of the top five seeds remain in contention, including the top seed — and defending champion — Brentwood College.
Brentwood College beat No. 8 Shawnigan Lake 75-55 in a battle of Vancouver Island’s top two teams.
The Seycove Seahawks, seeded No. 5, beat the No. 4 Charles Hays Rainmakers 91-80 and will now face Brentwood College.
The other semifinal is the No. 2 Westsyde Whundas as the Kamloops school won 66-47 over the No. 10 Clarence Fulton Maroons.
The Whundas are next up against the No. 3 King George Dragons. The Dragons won 72-43 over the No. 6 Britannia Bruins in a clash between the top two Vancouver teams in the draw.
The semifinals get underway on centre court at 7 p.m. with the second game set for 8:45 p.m.
