NRHEG went on an 8-0 run in the first half to expand its lead to 26-16, as St. Peter didn’t score for the remaining seven minutes of the first half.

“That was a good stretch of defense we played to not let (St. Peter) score,” NRHEG coach Pat Churchill said.

NRHEG built a 17-point lead in the second half, but St. Peter closed the gap a few times, only to see the lead grow back.

Tyler Raimann scored eight points and had 13 rebounds for NRHEG.

NRHEG is now 14-0 on the season and will host Bethlehem Academy tonight.
