1A GIRLS HOOPS - Damascus Christian moves alone to the top of the Valley 10 with win
When Columbia Christian jumped out to a 11-point lead behind its 3-point shooting in the first quarter, Damascus never panicked.
'When (Columbia) made that rush in the first (quarter)… I told the girls that they would slow down,' Eagles' head coach Dave Wakefield said. 'Those shots were falling for (Columbia) then, and I knew that they wouldn't fall for them coming up in the second half.'
The Eagles weathered the storm.
And once the dust cleared, Damascus made its own run, outscoring the Knights by 21 points in the second half. Behind their calm demeanor, the Eagles ran away with a 65-51 win, which allowed them to maintain sole possession of first place over the Knights in the Valley-10 League.
