The Faith Academy Knight basketball team collected its second win of the season sandwiched in between two losses during last week’s play.
Faith Academy lost to School of the Woods 57-32 last Tuesday, beat True North 68-46 Thursday then closed with a 72-35 loss to Kingwood Covenant Prep Friday.
In the Knights’ win over True North, two Faith Academy athletes collected over 20 points to help lead their team to victory. Senior Nathan Figueroa registered a double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds and junior Jonah Taake finished with 21 points and eight rebounds to grab the Knights’ second win of the season. Faith Academy used the second (14-6 advantage) and third quarters (21-11) to extend its lead heading into the final frame of regulation.
In Tuesday’s loss to School of the Woods, the Knights were led by Taake’s 12 points and five rebounds and Figueroa’s eight rebounds and six points. Taake once again led the team in Friday’s loss to Kingwood Covenant and recorded 12 points and five rebounds.
Faith Academy was scheduled to travel to face Aggieland Homeschool Thursday for its next contest.
