Scarborough Prep Wins 2022 Chris Smalling Tourney



On October 29, 2022, Scarborough Prep won this year’s CROWN Scout presents… Chris Smalling Tournament with a tight 53-50 victory against the Crestwood Lions in the Championship Final game.

The victory came on the strength of double digit efforts that came from Megan Jasie with her 11 points and from Santianna Davy and Skylar Forbes each scoring 10 points for the first year prep program.

The matchup between Scarborough and Crestwood was a tight one throughout the game. Crestwood held on to a slim one point lead after the first quarter thanks to Toby Fournier scoring 10 of her total 20 points in the game, in the opening quarter. But, but halftime the two teams were deadlocked at 31.

The second half saw Scarborough pull ahead, outscoring their Toronto rivals by four points in the third quarter, setting up for the dramatic finish that saw them maintain for the three point, 53-50 win, despite Taija Sta. Maria’s 8 points in the frame. Sta. Maria ended off the game with 16 total points as Crestwood’s second leading scorer as the Lions came up short.

The win in the Championship game capped off an undefeated weekend for Scarborough Prep. They also registered victories earlier in the event against Thetford Prep (43-35) and Calgary Basketball Association (87-41), earning them a chance to play for the event’s Varsity level Championship.

Scarborough Prep standouts Ally Fearon and Skylar Forbes were named Co-Tournament MVPs.
