Pella Christian got their 2010-2011 regular season underway Monday night in State Center with a win over the Trojans from West Marshall. Pella Chrisitan came out of the gates strong but was slowed by foul trouble that allowed West Marshall to hang around.

Pella Christian took a 5 point lead into the locker room at the half and the game remained close all the way to the end, as Pella Christian weathered a strong comeback from West Marshall. The Trojans even had the lead late in the game, but smart play down the stretch enabled the Eagles to start their season with a “W”.

Chase Carlson, Kyle Nikkel and Alex Branderhorst accounted for 60 of Pella Christian’s 64 points. The next game for Pella Christian is Saturday at home against Washington.
