Patriots Draw Bye in Sectional Play
February 17, 2013By Shane Lightfoot of Bethesda Christian High School
The Bethesda Christian Patriots drew the bye for the first round of the boys basketball Sectional #58 at University High School. The Patriots will play the winner of the opening round game featuring the host University Trailblazers and the Fall Creek Academy Engineers on Friday, March 1, at 6:00 p.m.
The Patriots played both teams during the regular season, losing a hard-fought, close game to the Trailblazers, 65-62, back on December 7th. The Engineers defeated the Patriots 67-53 on December 18th. Both games were winnable for the Patriots and they hope to turn their regular season experience into a post-season advantage as they face one of these teams for a second time.
Sectional #58 has all the ingredients to be an exciting, competitive tournament. Tickets to the sectional are $6 per session and $10 for a sectional season pass. Be sure to support your Patriots as they begin their quest for the sectional title!
