After a close first quarter on Valentine’s Day, the Jonathan Alder boys basketball team showed no love for visiting London.
The Pioneers (18-1) crushed the Red Raiders, 79-47.
Alder led just 16-15 after a quarter of play but outscored London, 26-4, in the second quarter thanks in large part to a 12-point effort from senior Eric Roby.

For London, Zac Carey led the way with 17 and Kyle Fisher had 11.

“Finally, we started to shoot the ball we’re capable of shooting in the second half.”
Jonathan Roby and Luke Shetler each finished with 18 points.
Shekinah Christian improved to 13-5.
