Westminster Christian coach Bruce Firchau pointed with pride to the strong defense his team played in the third quarter Saturday while shutting out rival Harvest Christian until 16 seconds remained until the fourth quarter, but there was one other highlight during the quarter that stood out both on the night and in program history.

Four-year varsity player Sam Carani got the ball and soared inside for a short running banker 1:59 into the second half, and the field goal represented his 1,000th career point as Westminster breezed to a 61-35 Northeastern Athletic Conference victory at home.
