ADAIR VILLAGE — Santiam Christian used some tough defense in the fourth to hold off Horizon Christian for a 44-41 West Valley League win on Wednesday.

The game stayed close throughout. SC held a 31-30 lead at the end of the third and then clamped down in the fourth.

"We couldn't make anything in that third quarter," SC coach Dennis McLain said. "In the fourth we played good defense and were able to limit them to one shot."

The Eagles (12-1, 4-0) did not allow a good look at the end of the game and wound up with the win.

Zach Baugher had 29 points and 10 rebounds for SC. The Eagles travel to Sheridan on Friday.
