Game Statistics


The Heritage Christian Eagles traveled south to face the defending conference champion Roncalli Rebels on Thursday night.  The Eagles jumped out to an early 8-2 lead before Roncalli was able to close the gap to 10-8 at the end of the first quarter.  Heritage Christian controlled the next two quarters with outstanding ball movement, sound shot selection, and stifling defense to lead 45-30 at the end of three.  The Rebels managed to shoot their way back into contention late in the game.  With the lead cut to 41-47 inside of three minutes to play, the Eagles went into “keep-away” mode.  Unforced turnovers (a problem all night for the Rebels) and solid free throw shooting at the other end eventually doomed Roncalli to a 54-46 loss.

Katlyn Gilbert (HC) led all scorers with 21 points on 9 of 11 shooting from the floor.  Madison Ferguson (HC) dropped in another 14 for the victorious Eagles.  Roncalli was paced by Anna Bauer, who scored a career high 12 points.  Ellie Bischoff and Alana Vinson each added 10 of their own for the host Rebels.
