Boys basketball: Calvary Christian 67, Northside Christian 42

CLEARWATER — Even though Calvary Christian missed 17 of 25 3-point attempts, center Kyle Weidinger called it a successful night.

The Warriors (3-2) won their third straight game, 67-42 over Northside Christian (1-3) on Friday. The eight 3-pointers that did go in forced the Mustangs to cover the perimeter and left Weidinger open under the hoop.

"It helps me when we hit (3s) because the defense can't crash in as much," said Weidinger, who hit nine buckets from the paint en route to a 19-point night.

"When the 3-pointers aren't getting hit, I'm getting triple teamed. But as long as they're hitting some of them, I'm grabbing offensive rebounds and still have the opportunity to put it back in."

Four Calvary Christian players hit buckets from outside the perimeter. Alex Govan hit three for a 17-point effort. Jim Appelt had two and finished with 14 points. Christian Colangelo knocked down two and Tyler Daniel added one.

Northside Christian tried to keep up with the Warriors' long-range attack by trying some outside shots of their own.

The Mustangs hit only 3-of-11 attempts and the lack of success only widened their deficit.

Kyle Keck led Northside Christian with 16 points. Corey Cavanagh had two 3-pointers and finished with eight points.
