Warrior Boys top Patriots

NLCA 67   Cornerstone 28

Coach Alan Mills’s Warrior Boys hosted the Cornerstone Patriots Thursday in a conference matchup. Earlier in the season NLCA had defeated Cornerstone 55-28.

The host Warriors dominated the game from the opening tipoff and used a smothering defense to contest every Patriot shot. NLCA connected on five 3-pointers and committed only three turnovers for the game.

Leading 41-12 at the half, Coach Mills was able to substitute liberally and nine different Warriors got into the scoring column.

NLCA now stands at 13-3 overall and 3-1 in the conference.
