GARDENDALE — Lauren Box was the go-to girl for Tabernacle Christian, as she scored 25 points — half her team's scoring for the night — as the Torches defeated Chilton Christian by a 50-40 score in ACEAA play Tuesday.
Box was a hot 60 percent (12-of-20) from the field for the night, and hit 76 percent from the second quarter onward.
After being down by as many as 19 points, the Patriots (0-10) mounted a comeback effort in the fourth quarter behind the scrappy play of sophomore guard Sarina Guttierrez. She grabbed five steals and scored nine points in the final frame alone, part of a 19-point night.
Kaylie Dickson added eight points for the Torches (3-7).
