Jon Walter drained a pair of three-pointers to highlight a 22-4 third-quarter run — scoring eight of his 11 points during the span — to lead the Delaware Christian boys basketball team to a 50-45 win over visiting Madison Christian Saturday in Delaware.

The win was the Eagles’ first of the season, bringing their record to 1-2 in MOCAL play.

Nathan Stewart backed Walter with 10 points in the win.

The Pioneers found their form late, outscoring the Cardinals in the second half, but it didn’t quite offset a slow start during Saturday’s showdown at Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

Mentor outscored Orange 23-13 in the first quarter and 17-7 in the second to build a big halftime lead it parlayed into the win.

Andre Irvin led the Pioneers with 15 points while Luke Ballinger knocked down four threes on the way to a 14-point night.

Kegan Hienton was a force down low, pouring in 29 points to lead the Golden Eagles to a solid non-league win over the visiting Vikings Saturday in Sunbury.
