The Sailors could not overcome the 11-point deficit at half to get the victory tonight despite tying the game at 39 points in the 4th quarter. The Eagles hit four 3-point shots in the first half to create the gap at half time, one came right at the buzzer to finish the half. South Christian came back in the 3rd quarter, as has been the case in many games, to get within 4 points with 5 different players scoring 14 points compared to the Eagles only connecting on 7 points in the entire 3rd quarter.
With 24 seconds left, Coach Sall called time out as the Sailors were down by 3 points. Caden was asked to miss the free throw on purpose, then tip it out to a 3-point shooter for the tie. The plan worked beautifully except the shot went in and out and the Sailors had no chance to tie the game as Grand Rapids Christian threw it the length of the court to run out the clock.
Caden Oetman led all scores with 20 points while Jack Schreur tallied 12 points. Pieter Veldhuijzen and Ashton Fennema each scored 6 points. Sam Zylstra and Chandler VanSolkema scored 2 and 1 points respectively to round out the scoring.
The Sailors travel to Wyoming next in attempts to get back on the winning streak they began the season with.
