Perrin strikes early in 66-49 win over Christ Academy
PERRIN – Learning how to maintain a lead is an important part of any basketball team.
Perrin’s boys' basketballers used suffocating defense to jump out to a 23-4 lead in the first quarter vs. Wichita Falls Christ Academy Friday night. The Pirates then began playing not to lose instead of trying to extend their lead but managed to play well enough down the stretch in posting a 66-49 win over the visiting Warriors.
Perrin goes to 6-7 with the win while Christ Academy falls to 2-10. Perrin Coach Max Hefner says his squad’s strong start was the difference in the game.
“We came out and did what we were supposed to do,” Hefner said. “When we had the lead, we tended to play more free and that allowed them to come back. We haven’t learned to play with a lead yet.”
Perrin had an 85 percent shooting (11-13) frame to get started. Senior Brady Adair converted from both inside and out for seven early points as part of a 13-0 run to start the contest. He would get plenty of help from Sammy Hernandez, Brice Adair, and Brigham Richardson.
