Game Review
The Patriots of Hesperia Christian opened defense of their Agape title of 2003-2004 with a solid victory over the Royals of Victor Valley Christian, 75-40. HCS was led by senior Nate Glass who tied his season high of 20 points for the third time and shot 75% from the three point line. Glass was supported by Billy Hague with 14 points and seven steals and Mike Petersen with 12 points and four steals. Notable was the play by Jordan Martinson who had a career high himself tonight. Martinson also shot 100% from the charity line.

The Patriots jumped out to a early 15-5 lead increasing it to 37-16 at the half. Overall, passing was crisp, rebounding solid with 38 rebounds and they shot 36% from three point land. HCS did not let up as they pushed hard in the third quarter beating the Royals 32-14.Everyone played tonight and everyone played well. There were a few downsides tonight to fix. Again HCS shot poorly from the free throw line making only 59%. That figure drops to 33% if one drops Martinson's perfect 2 for 2 and Jonny Barton's 5 for 6 from the free throw line. Royals Tim Abraham and Tyler Rasmussen, known good three point shooters each got two threes, both completely uncontested. HCS had 19 turnovers, the fifth highest turnover rate this season. Against Victor Valley Christian, that should not have occurred. Now HCS is 6-9 (1-0) and atop the Agape League at the moment. The playoff count is now 5 wins. HCS next meets Bethel Christian at home on Friday.
