Game Review
In the Finale in Lancaster, Hesperia Christian and Antelope Valley Christian fought it out to determine who would be the sole champion of the Agape League. In a hard fought battle where HCS showed their true grit and heart, they beat the Eagles soundly 74-56 to capture the title.

Led by Mike Petersen and his 22 points and Zach Howard's 21 points, HCS played one of their best games of the season (a tremendous contrast to their last match against the Eagles). Senior Loren Barton was phenomenal in his final regular season game as was senior Nate Glass whose defense of Chawn Johnson was critical. Billy Hague's seven steals and 8 assists cannot be overlooked.

And one has to give props to the young coaching staff whose brilliant game plan was the key to the victory tonight. Coach Dobyns has grown as a coach tremendously since the quarterfinals last season against St. Anthony's. If Dobyns is not named the Agape Coach of the Year, a crime will have been committed as he will have been robbed.

So HCS is now the 2004-2005 Agape Champion with a 9-1 record, the best HCS league record in years. Now we await the announcement of the top 16 seeds in Div VAA at 3 pm on Sunday and which opponent awaits the Patriots in round one of the Southern Section playoffs.

(L)Zach Howard makes an off-balance three.(R)Mike Petersen gets two of his 22 points.

In his final regular season game, Loren Barton gets two points.

Game Preview
The Agape season ends the way seasons should end with the two top teams meeting to determine the league championship. Hesperia Christian plays Antelope Valley Christian to decide the championship and to avenge HCS' only league loss this season. The Road to Loyola Marymount begins tonight. Winner gets the trophy and possibly a first round bye in CIF playoffs next Wednesday. It is a must win game for both teams.

This game will have the intensity of a playoff game. It is a time for HCS to demonstrate that they have the defensive abilities to go far in the playoffs. It means making free throws since a single missed free throw can be the difference in the game. It means getting over 33 rebounds as a team. It means preventing the Eagle's three stars, Johnson, Walker and James from having a breakaway game at the Patriot's expense. A win tonight will give HCS its best league record since joining the Agape League. HCS presently has more losses than they have had in the last four years and more than they had all last season (8). For the fifth straight year HCS has qualified for post-season play with 11 wins.

Antelope Valley Christian Eagles.
