Byrne Creek Secondary’s senior boys basketball team has set itself up nicely for the Lower Mainland playoffs and a better shot at the coveted provincial championship berth that has narrowly eluded them for the last two years. The Bulldogs, ranked seventh in the province, took down fourth-ranked Burnaby independent school rivals St. Thomas More Collegiate 66-58 Thursday in a seeding game for the Lower Mainland tournament. With Thursday’s win, Byrne Creek will likely end up as the tournament’s second seed, while a loss would have dropped them to as low as fourth, according to Bulldogs coach Bal Dhillon, who said the result will make a “significant difference” for his team’s chances of earning a spot at provincials. The top four teams from the Lower Mainland go to the B.C. tournament, and Byrne Creek has ended up fifth for the last two years.
