It was a game where Troy was trying to get things turned around after a rough start, while Bethel was in pursuit of their first 4-0 start in many years. The Trojans used a big start to the game to sprint out to a big lead, and hold on for a 45-31 win over the Bees last week at the Hive.
The Trojans bolted out to a 12-0 lead, and from that point, the teams were even as Troy won their first game of the year.
Their Metro Buckeye Conference winning streak was in serious jeopardy, but the Troy Christian Eagles turned a six point deficit with five minutes left, into a thrilling 51-47 victory over Xenia Christian on Friday night. With the win, the Eagles extend their league winning streak to 41 games.
“We didn’t panic when we were six points down,” Troy Christian coach Ray Zawadzki said. “We made a nice run and it was gut check time for the kids.”
