Both the Tallavana Christian School and Robert F. Munroe boys basketball teams had success Friday night.

The Tallavana Lions won a home game against Gateway Baptist while Munroe’s Bobcats defeated Maranatha in Tallahassee.

Grant Braynen led a contingent of four Tallavana players in scoring in their 65-62 win. The Lions led most of the game but had to hold off a late Gateway charge.

Braynen hit 21 points and also dished out 10 assists. Michael Brown, who hit 12 points, James Combs, who scored 11, and Jay Vickers, who popped in 10, helped Braynen in the scoring load.

Sharpshooter Ben Reynoso swished in 31 to lead Gateway.

Parth Patel, John Hilton Revell and Tommy Murray led the Bobcats to their win over Maranatha. Patel hit 16 points, while Revell got 14.

Murray led the board work with 11 rebounds and also had five blocked shots.

It was the second win of the week for Munroe. The previous Monday the Bobcats knocked off Grace Christian from Bainbridge 51-44 with Hilton getting 19 points. Murray had another big game with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
