WYOMING — After scrapping to a two-point score at the half against the state ranked Wyoming Tri-Unity Christian boys basketball team on Friday night on the road, Fruitport Calvary Christian faltered and lost, 62-31 in the Alliance League.
Calvary Christian coach Brad Richards said it was a series of distractions and turnovers that spelled the difference in the second half, as the Eagles fell away.
The Eagles trailed Tri-Unity just 22-20 at the half, but then tumbled to a 10-point deficit, 39-29 after three quarters. Tri-Unity then pounded the Eagles, 23-2 in the fourth.
“We felt like we had a chance going into the game,” Eagles head coach Brad Richards said. “At halftime, our game plan was working.
“It’s unfortunate how the second half started with the fans, and give Tri-Unity Christian credit for completely disrupting our offense.
“We didn’t meet our turnover goals, that’s for sure.”
No one scored in double figures for Calvary Christian. Ethan Cammenga had 12 rebounds and Bradley Richards added 10 boards.
All-State player Brady Titus led Tri-Unity Christian with a game-high 27 points, of which 13 came in the fourth quarter.
Calvary Christian dropped to 9-4 overall and 3-2 in the league. The Eagles are next scheduled to see action Tuesday, Feb. 8 at home against Kentwood Grand River Prep.
