The Knights did score the first six points of the second stanza to gain a one-point, 16-15 edge.

The Warriors won the third quarter, 13-11, and took the fourth period 18-17.

Isaac Elliott netted a game-best 18 points for Faith Christian (2-1) and Connor Clifton tallied 11 points.

Seven other players contributed points to the victory.

The Warriors made three 3-point field goals.

Joseph Kennan paced CHA with 15 points; he swished five 3-point field goals, and Kenny Toomey tallied 10 and grabbed nine rebounds.

Also scoring for the Knights were Story Woolson with six points, Jeremiah Stocker and Cameron Ross each with five, Garrison Jamison and Hunter Stark each with two and Timmy Moyer with one.
