That advantage, however, was short-lived as the Trojans outscored Kingwood 13-6 in the second quarter to take a 25-23 halftime lead.

“We settled down and started running our offense,” MCS coach Rick Raines said. “When we hit the boards and those guys score in double figures, we win ball games.”

The Trojans broke the game open in the third period, outscoring Kingwood 17-8 to grab a comfortable 42-31 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Overall, the Meadowview Christian defense surrendered just 17 second-half points en route to the victory.
