RAINSVILLE, Ala. — The Cornerstone Christian Academy Eagles hosted the Valley Fire from Huntsville for both boys and girls varsity contests.  The games were played at Minvale Life Center in Fort Payne. 

In the opening game, the Lady Eagles took an impressive 65-24 region win over the Valley team.  Valley managed to stay within one point (12-11) at the end of the first period.  In the second quarter, the Lady Eagles began pulling away outscoring the Fire 14-8.  The third quarter domination continued with the Lady Eagles scoring 24 while allowing only 5.  Cornerstone added another 15 in the final stanza while holding the Fire scoreless.

Dabney Culpepper led the Lady Eagles in scoring with 21 points while Abbie Sims and Laura Beth Wells each tossed in 12.

The varsity boys took an equally impressive win (74-44) in their region match up.  The Fire jumped out to a 13-10 advantage at the end of the first quarter.  The Eagles began taking control in the second period and went into the half leading 28-26.  

In the 2nd half, the Fire could find no answer for Matthew Ferguson who would leave the game mid-way through the final period with 42 points.  After three periods, the Eagles were in control 57-37.  Going into the final stanza, the Fire was completely out of gas on both offense and defense.  Consequently, the Eagles outscored them 17-7.  Besides Ferguson’s 42 points, eight other Eagles got into the scoring; Bryce Dupree 8; Eli Carter 6; Grady Camp 5; Ethan Wooten 4; Matthew Johnson 3; Brady Biddle, Jeremy Andrews and Jackson Furlong each had 2.
