Brookwood tried their best to come back from behind in the final minutes but Concordia outplayed them and the game ended 86-78.

Concordia’s head coach Vitello Moussigone told The Chronicle it was his team’ s defensive play which earned them the victory after the game.

Defense made our success on the court today. The guys played as a team. It was a big game. After the first quarter, we (the  coaches) spoke to the guys, told them that if we played as a team, shared the ball and played well defensively, everything would go well,” he said.

As for Brookwood’s head coach Joey McKitterick, he said his team was simply too tired to obtain the win.

“It was our fourth game in three days. We just played at the Sun Youth Holiday Tournament where we beat Dawson College yesterday. My guys were just out of gas. They had nothing left to give,” he said.
