The Trinity Christian boys basketball team was on its way to a breakthrough victory in Region 1-AAA play on Tuesday when Holy Spirit whisked it from the Lions' grasp in a 48-42 loss.
A three-point lead after one quarter blossomed to a 24-17 halftime advantage for Trinity Christian, in search of its first region win during the final week of the regular season.
Despite a balanced scoring effort led by Tyler Anderson's 11 points, the Lions hit a wall in the third period, which has haunted the team recently in 1-AAA play. An 11-4 run by Holy Spirit (4-12, 2-6) tied the game at 28 heading into the fourth quarter before overtaking Trinity Christian for good in the final period.
Senior Thiago D'Elia scored eight points for the Lions (4-18, 0-8) while Spencer Bryan and Glen Whisby each added seven.
Trinity Christian's boys travel to Grace Baptist on Thursday before opening the Region 1-AAA tournament Monday as a No. 6 seed. The Lady Lions wrap up the regular season Friday at Atlanta Girls School.

MONDAY'S GAMES

BOYS – LOGANVILLE CHRISTIAN 66, HERITAGE SCHOOL 55: Region 1-AAA leader Loganville (15-2, 8-1) earned revenge from its only division loss of the season by frustrating the Hawks on a night where Heritage School shot 36 percent from the field and just 6 of 21 from the free-throw line on the road.

Heritage School finished with 32 turnovers after falling behind 21-12 after one quarter. The Hawks were able to close the gap to 32-27 at halftime and kept it within six points to open the fourth quarter but couldn't finish off the comeback.

Spencer Perry led Heritage School with nine points and Tyler Henson added eight in the loss, which dropped the Hawks to 16-4 overall and 6-3 in 1-AAA among three schools chasing Loganville for the region's No. 2 seed.
