Host Scottsdale Christian’s Jared Frame scored 16 points and added seven rebounds to lead the Eagles to a 62-52 victory over Cortez.
Frame was one of four Scottsdale Christian players to score double figures for the Eagles. Clay Crookman (14), Matt Benefiel (12) and Connor Segneri (10) all hit the double-digit mark to give Frame plenty of help giving the Colts (6-1) their first taste of defeat on the year.
Scottsdale Christian jumped out to a 25-13 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, improving their record to 3-1.
Cortez 33, Scottsdale Christian 24: Faith Gatling finished with 12 of the Eagles 24 points, but it was not enough to keep Scottsdale Christian from dropping to 2-6 on the season. The Colts improved to 3-3.
Pinnacle 10, North Canyon 0: Jorian Baucom scored four of the Pioneers’ 10 goals, to lead the Pioneers to shutout the visiting Rattlers.
Three of Baucom’s goals came in the first half of the game, with teammate Lily Brown scoring the other two, giving Pinnacle a 5-0 lead at the break.
Baucom added another goal in the second half, but the rest of her team picked up the slack with Ali Lixandru scoring two, Kayla Fleming netting one and Hannah Riskas adding a goal, as well.
With the win, the Pioneers improved to 5-2 overall.
Desert Ridge 2, Skyline 1: Ana Morris and Amina Sanchez each found the net for the Jaguars. Morris also added an assist.
Northwest Christian 3, Scottsdale Christian 2: Despite taking a 2-1 halftime lead on the road, the Eagles gave up two scores in the second half, while getting shutout themselves, resulting in their third loss in five games.
