Falcons get double-dip win over Faith

Forest Lake Christian’s varsity boys basketball team moved to 4-2 in Central Valley Christian League play Friday night with a 69-50 home victory over Faith Christian.

The Falcons (8-9 overall) had an apparent size advantage over the Lions, which FLC head coach David Thomas said meant his team faced a zone defense throughout.

“We’re not a tremendously strong three-point shooting team,” said Thomas, whose Falcons hit 7 of 20 threes on Friday. “But Adam (Reed) was 4 for 8 from the three-point line, which was really important. Adam was the one who broke the zone open for us.”

With Reed hitting for 16 points, and grabbing eight rebounds, Nate Holt found room underneath to lead the Falcons with 19 points, while adding seven rebounds. Sam Metteer added a game-high 14 rebounds, while Serge Castlebury grabbed seven boards.

FLC finished with 14 steals, 14 turnovers and a season-high 20 assists.

The Falcons return to action Tuesday, when they travel to Victory Christian (11-6, 4-1).
