Meadowview Christian, Cornerstone Christian split

Meadowview Christian School may have a future girls’ basketball star on its roster.

Junior Patricia Peoples scored 14 points, grabbed 26 rebounds and blocked eight shots as the Lady Trojans beat Cornerstone Christian School (CCS) 48-37 on Tuesday night.

CCS won the boys’ game 82-61, improving to 2-0.

The six-foot-one Peoples came off the bench in the second quarter after Erin McIntyre was injured for the Trojans (2-1).

“Patricia had a huge night,”  MCS coach Bob Taylor said. “When Patricia learns to use her body, she will help us down the road.”

Kaylee Chancey led the LadyTrojans with 17 points.

“It was tough when Erin got hurt, but the girls stepped up,” Taylor said.  “We need to work on cutting down our turnovers.”

The Trojans (0-3)  stumbled out of the gate, trailing 35-12 after one quarter.

MCS couldn’t stop CCS’ trio of Brady Edwards, Drew Logan and Hunter Corder, who combined for 59 points. Edwards led all scorers with 22 points, Corder added 20 and Logan scored 17.

“I’ve been coaching four years and this is the most teamwork I’ve seen,” CCS coach Matthew Allen. “I’m looking forward to seeing where this will end up.”

MCS was led by Christian Jones’ 19 points. Garrett Brech added 18 points.
