Playing on its home court Tuesday night, Boyd Christian was overpowering in high school basketball action.
The Broncos had too much scoring for Metro Christian from Goodlettsville as Boyd cruised to a 66-33 victory.
Christian Rogers led Boyd with 19 points, followed by Jace Oliver with 13.
“They had a couple starters missing due to COVID so this gave us an opportunity to really work on us,” said Boyd coach Chris Perry. “Like everyone else, we’ve been limited with what we can do as far as practice time.”
Boyd established control from the opening tip. Behind 7 points from Oliver, the Broncos raced out to a 19-5 lead.
Bronco sharp-shooter Sam Page put any doubts away in the third quarter when he drained three 3-pointers to put the game out of reach. Boyd finished with seven 3-pointers and flashed scoring punch from inside and out.
Metro Christian only had two players to score. David Byrd finished with a game-high 26 points, while Alden Spain added 7.
The win evens Boyd’s record at 3-3. Coach Perry said the Broncos are finding their identity as they play a mixture of private and small public schools. He pointed to Rogers as being a key player thus far.
“Christian is a post who can also step outside and shoot the 3,” said Perry. “He is where it really starts with us. Our two seniors, Jase Oliver and Cain Buckner, have also done a nice job. Jase is our point guard and Cain is a post. We’ve gotten solid, all-around play from everyone.”
The Broncos are scheduled to play their next home game on Tuesday against Grace Academy Baptist with a 6:30 p.m. start time.
