Arlington Christian basketball teams overpowered Trinity Christian on Tuesday in Sharpsburg in a meeting of former Region 2-AAA rivals.
The Lions battled in the first half to pull within a 1-point halftime deficit before Arlington pulled away down the stretch for a 76-61 victory.
Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles’ three-time state champions continued an impressive unbeaten streak of now over 100 games in a 60-30 victory over Trinity’s girls.
Down just 38-37 at halftime, Trinity’s boys were able to keep pace before Arlington began to take control and pushed out to a seven-point advantage by the start of the fourth quarter.
“My guys played hard,” said Lions head coach Anthony Lamb, who received a team-high 15 points from Thiago Roig and 14 from Dee Snelling.
Glen Whisby added nine in the loss and first-year center Mark Collier chimed in with seven.
Sara Bryan led Trinity’s girls with an 18-point effort, but it wasn’t enough to avoid falling behind 35-16 to an Arlington Christian lineup led by senior center Ana Anderson, who recently signed with Mercer. Kaylee Grave and Ashley Caldwell each added four points in the loss for the Lady Lions.

Both Trinity teams return to play on Friday at Tattnall Square.
