The First Presbyterian Christian Academy Highlanders barely broke a sweat Tuesday, defeating the boys of Providence Christian Academy 102-23 at the St. James Sports Center.

After the Highlanders dramatically beat Deerfield Windsor by 1 point during a nail-biter Saturday in Albany, Tuesday’s game allowed coach David Jones to clear the bench without fear of allowing the opponent to stage a comeback.

The Highlanders were up 73-22 by the third quarter. FPCA allowed Providence to score only once from the line during the second half.

The Lady Highlanders had a good showing as well, winning 50-2.

The Highlanders face Citizens Christian at home tonight and will host Furtah Prep tomorrow night. The girls tip-off at tonight and at 4 p.m. Saturday. The boys’ games will follow.
