If Glide is the second best team in the Sunset League — as the standings entering Tuesday indicated — there's plenty of separation between Cascade Christian and everyone else.

If Glide is the second best team in the Sunset League — as the standings entering Tuesday indicated — there's plenty of separation between Cascade Christian and everyone else.

Forty-five points to be exact.

Fifth-ranked Cascade Christian improved to 7-0 in Sunset League play, and 18-2 overall, with its second most dominating effort of the season, downing Glide 62-17 at The Pavilion on Tuesday.

It's the second lowest output allowed and second largest margin of victory this season for the Challengers. They defeated Glendale 75-15 in a nonconference game on Dec. 13 at the Rogue River Tournament.

"It definitely separates us," Cascade Christian coach Brian Morse said. "We know that we are the best team in this conference. We're just trying to get better every game and get ready for the playoffs."

Cascade Christian had four players in double figures, led by Jarrod Hess' 14. Scott Morse had 13, Jeremy Cheney had 12 and Ben Joffer had 10. The Challengers marched to an 18-3 lead after one quarter and a 28-5 lead at the break.

Cascade Christian had 13 steals as a team, led by Joffer's five, and forced 23 turnovers by pressuring Glide's guards.

"They couldn't get into any offensive sets," coach Morse said. "That was one of our goals was to force them to start their offense far away from the basket. They did not get very many good looks offensively."

Entering Tuesday's contest, Glide had won four straight and averaged close to 60 points per game in that stretch. The Wildcats were led by Elliot Standish and Patrick Ridgley, who each had five points.

Glide managed its most productive quarter in the third, scoring 10 points, but Cascade Christian also had its best output that quarter as well with 24. Scott Morse had eight of his 13 points in the third.

"We were settling for open jumpers in the first half and they weren't falling," coach Morse said. "We shot the ball so poorly in the first half. The third quarter we wanted to go inside, and I thought we did a good job of that."

Cascade Christian's five starters rested in the fourth quarter. Sophomore forward Colton Cochran played well in extended action, grabbing 10 rebounds to go along with his six points.

Mountain Valley League

GILCHRIST 43, BUTTE FALLS 41 — At Gilchrist, Ryan Stinsen made a jumper with 22 seconds remaining to lift Gilchrist to the Mountain Valley League victory.

Stinsen finished with 14 points. Butte Falls led by four late in the contest and again by two after Josh Sutfin free throws, but Gilchrist responded to tie each time and eventually forced a turnover to set up Stinsen's shot.

Butte Falls called timeout to set up a play but lost the ball on a drive to the hoop.
