It wasn’t a good time for the Faith Christian School boys basketball team to be missing 6-foot-6 junior center Micah Andrews.

With Andrews out because of illness, the Saints lost to rival Cambridge Christian School 57-30 Tuesday, Jan. 10, at FCS.

The Warriors, behind 6-3 center Peter Maring, rolled past Faith Christian 57-30, with Maring scoring 34 points as he dominated inside play.

“Our man-to-man match-ups didn’t turn out to be what we had anticipated because of Micah’s absence,” said Faith Christian Coach Don Andrews. “We couldn’t handle him so we went to a zone defense, but, even then, we weren’t able to stop Maring and the rest of the Cambridge team.

“They had too many weapons to keep us from making any runs.”

A pair of baskets by guard Tanner Eidsvoog pulled the Saints to within 12-11, but Cambridge then went on to take a 31-11 halftime lead.

Guard Trevor Roelofs led the Saints with 12 points while Eidsvoog and Justin Childs each scored six points.

The Saints, 10-4, host South Metro Friday night, Jan. 20  at 6:45, then travel to Mankato to face Immanuel Lutheran Saturday.
