It's not gold, but the Duchess Park Condors still played with their heads held high this morning (March 9) after a crushing loss to North Delta the night before (March 8) in the Boys AAA BC High School Provincial Championships in Langley.
In the semifinal last night, the Condors lost on a last-second three-pointer against North Delta with a final score of 61-62.
