St. Francis Jr. Falcons go undefeated in regular season hoops

St. Francis Falcons Junior Boys basketball team finished its season last Wednesday with a pair of wins over visiting Kinuso.

The Falcons are the monsters of the league this season, having rolled over all competition on the way to an undefeated record.

Kinuso was late in arriving, thanks to an accident on Hwy. 2 (so we heard). They were ready to play, however, and put up a good fight against the skillful Falcons, scoring 42 and 43 points in the doubleheader. However, there was no stopping the St. Francis attack, which rolled up totals of 74 and 71 points.

Jack Albrecht was the top scorer for the Falcons in Game 1, with 18 points. Darren Tumbado led St. Francis with 21 in the second game.

An interesting factor in the Kinuso game was the emergence of Tanner Churchill as a scoring threat.

According to league statistics issued just before the Feb. 20 games, he had averaged five points per game over five games. Against St. Francis last Wednesday Churchill broke out with totals of 24 and 23 points. If he’d kept up that pace through the season he would have been in the top two or three in league scoring in two leagues in two sports. The other is Tier III Bantam hockey, where he finished the regular season tops in goals and third in points.
