HAGERSTOWN — The Broadfording Christian Academy boys basketball team started off strong and stayed strong, getting a 77-55 win over New Life Christian on Thursday night in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference game.

“Our game plan was to pressure full court to begin with to see if it would get us going, offensively,” Broadfording coach Burnie Clutz said. “I think we succeeded. We created a lot of turnovers early and turned those into baskets. At the beginning of the second quarter, we attempted to play various zones in an attempt to confuse them offensively.”

Moni Anderson led the way with 28 points and seven assists for Broadfording (22-7, 11-1).

“We just practiced hard and played together,” Anderson said. “We hustled well on defense. We just worked hard to build that big lead early in the game. I practiced a lot on my shooting last night. The shots were falling tonight.”

Mawdo Sallah recorded a double-double with 16 rebounds and 14 points to go along with six blocked shots and eight assists for the Lions.

“We were moving the ball good,” Sallah said. “My teammates were trying to find me. Whenever I got the ball, I was ready.”

Cisco Silva collected 15 rebounds and 11 points, while Isaiah Daniels had 10 points for the Lions.

Jermiah Chambers scored 21 points for New Life (10-10, 6-4). Connor Brown added 12 points and eight rebounds, while Austin Brown had nine points and seven rebounds.

Anderson scored 12 points in the first four minutes of the game to help the Lions race out to a 17-2 advantage over the Rams. Sallah then added a pair of baskets to jack the lead up to 21-2. By the end of the first quarter, the Lions held a 25-9 advantage.

The Lions increased their advantage to 46-24 by halftime.

 Earlier in the evening, the New Life girls cruised to a 54-12 victory over Broadfording.

Broadfording (2-16, 1-11) was at a serious depth disadvantage as it had only six girls available to play.

The first quarter clearly set the tone as New Life (11-8, 8-1) raced to a 26-2 lead over Broadfording.

By halftime, the Rams’ lead ballooned to 38-3.

“My girls passed the ball really well and that was our focus for tonight,” New Life coach Brian Roynestad said. “We were really knocking down our shots. I am confident that we will be ready for the playoffs.”

Liz Catoe had 16 points, four assists and three steals for New Life. Kelsi Stopyra scored 10 points, Julia Hamrick pulled down seven rebounds and Allison Rice grabbed six rebounds.

Kierra White led Broadfording with six points. Ambrielle Kolb added six rebounds for the Lions.
