Liberty Christian School opened the second quarter on an 8-0 run and pulled away from a close game for a 71-37 win over White Plains Christian School Friday.

In the battle of the two Patriots teams, Liberty’s Adam Stanley scored three times in a 10-0 run to go up 12-4.
The home team came right back with a three-pointer from Caleb Hall, then Zane Eaton hit another just before the buzzer to close to 14-12.
Eaton hit four baskets and scored nine of his 12 points in that first period.
After Liberty’s 8-0 run — with all the points coming from Jeremy Sandridge — the visiting team pulled out to a 33-18 lead and just missed adding to that when a three-pointer at the halftime horn was waved off by the officials.
Liberty scored 19 points in each of the last three quarters, building a 52-29 lead after three before winning 71-37.
