The Grizzlies opened the game by going on a 17-0 run and led after one quarter 19-4.

From there the Colts were able to bounce back to make it close but the Grizzlies were able to pull away late for a 47-36 victory.

Cassidy Warren-Timpano (Barrie) led the way for the Grizzlies scoring a team-high 13 points while teammate Mckenzie Howlett (Barrie) had a 12 point performance.

The win was Georgian's second of the season with both victories coming over the Colts. The two teams will meet one more time to close out the regular season on Feb. 16.
