Shalom    45

No. 5 Calvary    38

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Calvary Christian Academy controlled the tempo and played one of its best games of the year but came up just short to the first-place and undefeated team in the conference in falling to Shalom Tuesday in Mason-Dixon Christian Conference action at Shalom.

The Eagles tried to slow the pace of the game as best they could and had success employing a triangle-and-two defense in an effort to contain Shalom’s Tori Yoder and Lydia Harris, but Yoder still managed 17 points and Harris 16 to lead the Flames. Most of Yoder’s and Harris’ points came on breakaways, although Yoder hit a halfcourt shot at the halftime buzzer to turn a 22-21 Calvary lead into a 24-22 halftime Shalom lead.

“That shot gave them the momentum at half,” said Calvary Coach Rusty Kitzmiller, “but we played one of our best games tonight. We slowed the tempo as much as we could and were down by just four with three minutes to go in the game. I thought we could pull it out, but they’re 13-0 and the No. 1 team in the conference and we gave them a game. I’m really proud of our team.”

Calvary was led by Karly Hipsley with 20 points, 14 rebounds and three blocked shots, while Brooke Ricker scored seven points and had 12 rebounds. Payton Emerick had six rebounds for the Eagles, and Logan Ketterman three assists and three steals.

Calvary (15-6 overall, 7-5 MDCC), currently in fourth place in the conference, will host Cumberland Valley on Thursday.
