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)
