Marshall Christian picked up a pair of wins in differing fashions, and in the process continued their torrent offensive pace.

On Thursday, the host Stallions dominated visiting Valley from start to finish in a 82-26 drubbing, then on Monday rallied from a 19-point deficit to knock off Cornerstone Rainsville, 85-79. The Stallions have topped the 80 point mark in four consecutive games, and improved to 11-2 with the pair of wins.

Against Valley, all 13 players on the Marshall Christian roster scored, led by Evan Dobbins who had a game-high 22 points. Joel Dobbins added 14, while Noah Williams and Eason Gazic each chipped in with 10. Marshall Christian knocked down 10 3-pointers as a team in the win.

Monday's game against Cornerstone took a different turn, with the Stallions struggling from behind the arc, and trailing by as many as 19 in the first half.

According to head coach Phillip James, the Stallions went 4 for 29 on triples for the game, but switched their focus to the post to take advantage of defensive mismatches they had.

Joel Dobbins starred in the come-from-behind win, racking up 38 points, pulling in 13 rebounds, and going a perfect 9 of 9 at the foul line. Williams netted 14 points and dished out seven assists, Jayvyn Harris had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Evan Dobbins chipped in with 12 points.

The Stallions return to the court on Thursday for a road game at Mt. Pleasant Christian in Blountsville.
