The Fleetwood Park Dragons are one win away from qualifying for the 2013 B.C. Senior Girls' AAA Basketball Championships after a fifth-place finish in the Fraser Valley championships last week.
As the fifth seed out of the Valley, the Dragons must win a wildcard game tonight (Feb. 26) in Victoria against Nanaimo's Dover Bay to advance to the provincial tourney.
The Dragons' lone loss of the Valley tourney came at the hands of W.J. Mouat in the second round, but after that, Fleetwood Park beat their next three opponents by a combined 52 points to earn the high wildcard seeding for a shot at the provincials.
In their first do-or-die game, the Dragons toasted Chilliwack 64-40 followed by a convincing 64-50 win over Yale.
Shilpa Khanna scored 22 points and Simran Bir added 18 in the win over Yale.
The Dragons then nailed down the Valley 5 seeding with a 76-62 decision over MEI on Saturday night.
Bir led the way with 20 points while Cyrille Butac helped out with 17.
Khanna was Fleetwood lone representative on the Fraser Valley tournament all-star team.
