Christian Fellowship’s Eagles move to 4-0 after their 1st Region All “A” Classic 88-73 win over Community Christian on Saturday. A 10-point first quarter lead stretched out to 40-24 at halftime.  CCA out-scored CFS 49 to 48 in the second half but the Eagles first half lead was too much for the Warriors to overcome.

Led by senior Andrew Allen with 31 points, three others were in double figures – Andrew Dunning 23, Luke Grigg 19 and Isaac Hovekamp 13. Dunning and Grigg finished the night with double-doubles – Dunning with 15 rebounds and Grigg with 13.

They advance to play Mayfield on Tuesday at 6:30 in Mayfield. Three other All “A” quarterfinal games slated for Tuesday – Murray vs. Ballard Memorial, Hickman County vs. Fulton County and Carlisle County vs. St. Mary. The four teams advancing to the semi-finals will play Friday and the championship will be held on Saturday.
