If you glanced at the Faith Christian Girls record two weeks ago you would think they were in for a long season, they sat 0-4. The team struggled out the of the gates but grabbed one win in its annual trip to Glenwood Springs and that seemed to springboard the girls forward. Faith defeated Liberty Common on the road Wednesday (43-30) and that left them with a faceoff with the Sterling Tigers on Saturday afternoon.
Faith jumped out to an early lead on the strength of the inside play of Ashley Finch (14 points). Faith also pressured the ball and caused Sterling to struggle to find any sort of offensive rhythm. The Eagles also jumped out due to the hot outside shooting of Senior McKenzie Connor (12 points) who scored 4 3-pointers in the first half, to help Faith to a nearly 20 point halftime lead.
Defensively it was a team effort with every shot contested on the inside and outside with several blocks from Emilie Eggers. Sterling never got the deficit down to single digits and as the game concluded the final was 34-18 with Faith Christian grabbing its 3 straight victory.
Coach Denver Klaus has seemed to right the ship a bit and the girls feeling confident as they head into Christmas Break. Another note of importance was the return to the floor of Senior Maura Tully from an injured hip. She will add another key component for Faith as they head into the tough Metro Conference schedule.
