A disastrous second quarter sealed the fate of the Georgetown Rebels in the Halton Secondary Schools Athletic Association AAAA senior boys' basketball final on Wednesday night, as Burlington's Notre Dame Fighting Irish chalked up a 53:31 victory. The Rebels led 8-4 after the first quarter and were able to handle an aggressive and more experienced Notre Dame side under the basket, but Georgetown's game plan began to unravel after that, with the Irish outscoring their opposition 21-2 to take a 25-10 halftime advantage. "We're a little young and sometimes it looked that way tonight, and (Notre Dame) is a good team," said Rebels' coach Steve Pettit. "It's all relative. We still won 29 games this year, did some nice things on the court and got a lot of travelling done. Hopefully, our guys were taught some good lessons and had fun doing it." Kevin Chambers led Notre Dame with five threepointers and 21 total points. Dalton Olinoski and Spencer Troop were the top GDHS scorers with 10 points apiece. On the bright side, just one starter from this year's edition of the senior Rebels, Corey Carlton, won't be back next season, and some talented juniors will be vying for roster spots as well.
