Damascus boys run away with victory in the first half
The Eagles streak into halftime to down SW Christian 54-46 in the Valley 10 playoffs
The Damascus Christian boys basketball team closed out the first half on a 15-1 spurt to take command in a 54-46 Valley 10 League playoff win over Southwest Christian on Thursday night.
Tony Weaver converted a three-point play early in the second period to push the Wildcats in front. But the lead would last only a matter of seconds.
Damascus Christians Johnny Bright stepped between a pair of Wildcats to pick up a steal, which turned into a Hunter Straub 3-pointer at the other end. Teammate Silas Marvin served up a long ball of his own, and Daniel Vroom swiped a steal and took it the distance for a layin.
In less than a minute, the Eagles found themselves in command 22-13 and on their way to Saturdays 7:30 p.m. title game against No. 5-ranked Columbia Christian.
