After dropping its first four Little Hawkeye Conference games, the Pella Christian boys basketball team has won back-to-back contests, including a double overtime thriller Tuesday against Dallas Center-Grimes.

Coach Larry Hessing says it’s fun watching his young team figure things out.

“We’re on a little bit of a roll. We really believed that this team could get to this point, and we’re going to have to keep fighting. The competition is going to be really good with Newton Friday night and then Des Moines Christian on the road on Saturday. We’re looking forward to it and looking forward to a couple of good practices before that.”

Tomorrow night’s matchup against Newton will be played at Pella Christian High School, and is the last game of the first trip through the Little Hawkeye Conference. At 2-4, the Eagles are currently tied for sixth with DC-G.
