Bethel Christian 47, Faith Christian 26

* Bethel Christian used an 8-0 run in the third quarter to put away Faith Christian in a 47-26 victory in N.C. Christian Schools Association play Tuesday evening.

Carly Sanderson scored 18 of her game-high 22 points in the opening half as the Trojans built a double-digit lead.

"We got behind early tonight because of turnovers," Faith Christian head coach Eddie Smith said. "We showed our youth a little bit and Bethel has a very good team and they took advantage."

Molly Roebuck paced the Faith Christian offense with 11 points. Abigail Pierce added six points for the Conquerors.

Faith Christian (1-10 overall) plays host Tabernacle Christian on Friday night.

Oakwood 53, Wayne Country Day 46

* Wayne Country Day trimmed a 20-point, third-quarter deficit to nine points but couldn't complete the comeback in a 53-46 loss to defending Coastal Plains Independent 1-A Conference champion Oakwood on Tuesday evening.

The Chargers' Sarah Best scored a game-high 24 points.

"Sarah showed her senior leadership in the second half," Wayne Country Day head coach Eric Perry said. "She's been through the highs and lows of this program. We just didn't execute well in the first half and it wasn't because Oakwood didn't show us anything we weren't prepared for."

The Chargers (4-7 overall, 2-1 CPIC) travel to Greenfield on Friday.
