EL CAJON – Things early on for the Christian Patriots were a little closer than they would have liked as Crawford was able to hang around in the first quarter as the Patriots would only lead 18-13.

However, in the second quarter, the Patriots turned things up a notch behind Kristin Williams and her 10 points and limiting the Colts on the offensive end as they outscored them 15-3 to lead 33-16 at intermission.

More of the same in the second half for the Patriots as they charged out behind 11 points by Williams as she drilled a trio of three-pointers to pounce on the Colts 23-9 to lead 56-25.

Williams on the night for the Patriots poured in a team-high 32 points including nailing 8 3-pointers while Simone James contributed 17 points. Other scorers for the Patriots included Jazmine Crawford and her 8 points off the bench.

Hannah Richardson despite only scoring 2 points on the night really hustled and played hard and was a big factor in the defensive effort.

With the victory, the Patriots improve to 3-0 in league play and 11-5 overall and will next take on a tough Santa Fe Christian squad that is ranked No. 4 in the County and No. 3 in Division I with a 10-2 record.

The contest against Santa Fe Christian will definitely be a test for the Patriots as they try and establish themselves as a top team in the County.

The special non-league contest is part of an MLK All-Day Showcase and will be the main event at 8:30 pm on Saturday, January 13th at the Ryan Center on the campus of Christian High School.
