Fruitport Calvary Christian’s varsity boys basketball team staged a major comeback in Monday’s season-opener, only to fall two points short.
The Eagles lost to Pentwater, 50-48, as Pentwater hit the game-winner with 4 seconds remaining.
“We shot a contested 3-pointer at the buzzer that hit the rim,” said coach Jim Warren. “This was actually a big comeback. We were getting destroyed on the offensive boards early on and were behind 19-6.”
Pentwater nailed three first-quarter 3-pointers, and eventually built a 14-point lead before Calvary Christian began to whittle away at the lead.
“Our press really wore them out in the third, and we went on a big run to take the lead,” Warren said. “We just fell short.”
Michael Warren led the Eagles with 23 points and 11 rebounds, while Mark Carlson added 17 points and five assists.
