CHRISTIAN 62, DEL NORTE 50

The Christian Patriots hosed the Nighthawks of Del Norte on Tuesday night and right away showed who the better team was as they jumped out to a 21-8 lead after the first quarter. Things in the second quarter got a little more competitive as Christian only outscored Del Norte 14-12 in the second. However the Patriots went into the intermission leading 35-20.

For Christian, Jackson Larsen pitched in a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. He also blocked 3 shots and had an assist. Also for Christian helping out in the scoring department was Jordan Gaines who drilled in 14 points and grabbed a couple rebounds and dished out 2 assists on the night.

In the second half the Patriots still managed to keep their lead to over double digits despite barely outscoring the Nighthawks in the third quarter 16-15 to lead 51-35 after three quarters of play.

In the fourth quarter the Nighthawks put up a little offense to outscore the Patriots 15-11 but it was too little too late as Christian had done enough in the game to build and keep the double digit lead pretty much the entire contest.

With the win the Patriots now push their record to 4-2 and will play on Friday against Victory Christian Academy.
