The Toundra Take Newfoundland by Storm

Montréal, March 25th 2024

The Montreal Toundra landed in Newfoundland after a three-week hiatus, eyeing a challenging three-game set against the Rogues. Known for their formidable home record, the Rogues presented a steep hill to climb for the visiting Toundra.

The series opener on Thursday night showcased Antoine Mason’s explosive 44-point performance, narrowly missing the BSL record book. Despite Mason’s heroics, the Toundra fell short, with the Rogues securing a 115-107 victory.

Saturday’s game turned into a classic. Trailing by 12 in the waning moments, the Toundra orchestrated a dramatic comeback, pushing the contest into overtime. The trio of Mason, Dominick Welch, and Mambi Diawara combined forces, propelling Montreal to a hard-fought 123-117 win, evening the series.

Sunday’s decider was marked by intensity and physical play, with both teams leaving everything on the court. The Toundra’s balanced attack proved too much for the Rogues, as seven Montreal players hit double figures, leading to a commanding 138-127 victory. The game reached its boiling point following Levi Londole’s emphatic dunk, overshadowed only by the loss of Brandon Beloti, who exited in the third quarter and didn’t return.

Fresh off their series win, the Toundra are heading back to Montreal for a big weekend. They’re facing the Windsor Express on March 29 at the Pierre-Charbonneau Centre, launching a three-game home stand.  This weekend, dubbed “Week-End Pour Nos Enfants” in partnership with Basketball Québec, is a fundraiser for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. Half of all proceeds will go to the foundation, making each ticket more than just entry to a game. Friday night’s game is close to selling out – grab your tickets soon to be part of this meaningful event.
