Lighthouse Christian Academy was missing three starters for Tuesday’s basketball game because the seniors went to Six Flags Magic Mountain for an unauthorized ditch day and were disqualified from league play.
Naturally, players were glum. Having won its first game, LCA didn’t expect — with only six players (half the roster) — to be able to muster much.
But Highland Hall also showed up with only six players, and so the Santa Monica Saints won 43-22 in the Northridge game.
At the first quarter, Lighthouse was sloppy. The score was 7-7. The Saints gave up easy turnovers.
In the second quarter, LCA picked up the pace and recovered its game somewhat, but still the score at half time was tight: 14-12. Read the rest: Santa Monica basketball private school.
