The Trinity Saints Varsity boys and girls played two well fought games at Union Christian Academy in Farmerville, LA. this evening, (Saturday, Jan. 28th).

But the Lions came back in the 4th quarter, after being down by 11 points, in the final minutes scored 18 points to tie the game with 13 seconds left. With just 6 seconds, with UCA bringing the ball into play at half court, Jakarius Caston stole the ball and scored the winning layup with less than 2 seconds remaining. It was also good to see Kevontaye Caston playing in his first game of the season. Jakarius Caston 22 points, David Jackson 8, DeSanto Rollins 7, Kris Genous 2 and Kevontaye Caston 1.
The girls game was also exciting, with the Lady Saints winning 41-31. At half time, the score was UCA 23 - THS 22.
