Junior Varsity boys
Trinity rallied from a 30-22 halftime deficit to halt an 8-game winning streak for the junior Eagles, 50-45.
“Trinity made some adjustments and we didn’t have a good third quarter on either end of the court,” said CFCA coach Bill Parrish. “Foul trouble was an issue and we had to adjust our game plan. … Proud of the effort against a very good team.”
Justin Chestnut had 13 pounts and nine rebounds for the Eagles (8-2). Fisher Stancil had nine points. Conner Parrish had eight points, seven rebounds and blocked three shots.
Taylor Smith scored seven points. Eli Burns and Elijah Ellis each had three points. Greyson Avent added two points.
