The Kindersley junior Kobras girls team went undefeated on the weekend to win their tournament. Shown in front is Mei Maki. Centre: Syphonna Leipert, Kayden Gavelin, Kaylee Allin, Brooke Otto and Natalie Fleming. Back row: coaches Megan Donald and Kate Kelly, Kolbi Belitski, Lyn Damasco, Tambir Kaur, Jillian Torrens and coach Shayla Olafson.

The Kindersley junior boys and girls basketball teams ruled the roost last weekend.

On the girls side, the Junior Kobras and Elizabeth Lions hosted a six-team tournament this past weekend and the two teams ended up meeting in the finals.

The older Junior Kobras ended up winning this one by a lopsided score, but members of the Lions showed some great ability and have greatly improved over the season.

Other teams competing in the tournament were from Outlook, Kerrobert, Luseland and Rosetown.

The next tournament for the Kobras will be in Rosetown on Feb. 3.
