Campbell leads Mountaineers over Lions

Hamilton Mountain News

Manny Campbell scored 23 points and Alex Reis added 17, as Mohawk downed Lambton 95-72 in OCAA men's basketball in Sarnia last Saturday.

The Mountaineers, who led the Lions 43-40 at half time, exploded for 35 third quarter points to blow the game open.

Andrew Cicuttini scored 14 points and had eight rebounds, while Jermaine Barr added 13 points and five boards for the Mountaineers, who improved to 12-3 and tied for second place in the West Region with Fanshawe. Lambton slipped to 4-12.

Mohawk’s scheduled game at St. Clair last Friday was postponed because of the big snow storm and rescheduled for midweek in Windsor.

The Mohawk women were also rescheduled with St. Clair because of the weather, but then improved to 7-7 with their second straight win - a 78-64 decision over Lambton, 5-10.

Natalie Fisher scored 15 points for the Mountaineers.

Carissa Browne had 14, while Lacey Wolters scored 11 and added nine rebounds and Katelyn Arbour added 10 points.

Mohawk lost its second straight men’s volleyball match and third in four outings, falling 25-20, 27-25, 25-18 at Niagara on Feb. 7.

Brad Regier led Mohawk with nine kills and Phil Youngblut recorded four kills and four stuff blocks.

The Mountaineers slumped to 8-8 while the Knights romped to their eighth consecutive victory to improve to 13-3, moving into a first place tie with Redeemer in the West Region.

Ironically, Niagara started its lengthy win streak on Dec. 4 at Mohawk, when they also swept three games.

However, the Mountaineers played giant killer at the Fennell gymnasium last Friday when they knocked off the high flying Redeemer Royals in a real barn-burner, 25-19, 25-18, 24-26,19-25,17-15.

Mo Sulaiman had another big night for the Mountaineers with 19 kills and four stuff blocks.

\Marcin Jedrzejewski had 14 kills and one block, while his brother Bart had 24 digs.

The Mohawk women’s volleyball team, who had a very promising season going for themselves, has gone off the rails.

Niagara beat them 26-24, 25-18, 25-11, handing the Mountaineers their sixth consecutive defeat.

It was a significant loss.

While Niagara moved into a tie for fourth place in the West Region, Mohawk missed a chance to create a three-way tie for fifth spot.

Chi Chi Chuks-Mady had six kills and two blocks for the Mountaineers.

Mohawk was then swept by Redeemer, 25-13, 25-23, 27-25 last Friday.

Redeemer’s Curtiss Straatsma had a monster game, leading all players with 18 kills, five stuff blocks and 10 digs.

Mohawk was led by Chantal Baker with eight kills and eight digs.

The Mountaineers' record dropped to 6-11, while Redeemer improved to 8-9.
