Santa Fe Opens Season with Emphatic 116-46 Win Over Impact Academy

Gainesville, FL – The Santa Fe Saints opened the 2017-18 season in style on Wednesday night in Gainesville, outscoring Impact Academy by 70 points, 116-46.  Eight players scored in double figures, led by Jake Dawkins 15.

"It was good to play someone else and get a game under our belts," said SF Coach Chris Mowry.  "Our guys did a nice job tonight not letting up in the second half.  They played hard for 40 minutes."

The game was never in question as the Saints (1-0) jumped out to a 20-2 lead five minutes in and led 55-23 at the half.

Malik Morrow started the second half off with a three pointer and the SF lead grew from there.

Every player on the active roster scored at least four points in route to the 116-46 win.  Scoring in double figures were Darrell Jones (11), D-Juan Taylor-Hodge (13), Morrow (11), Sean Flood (10), Dawkins (15), Ivan Smith (13), Elias Eerikinharju (10), and Brady Fernandes (14).  Lazar Djurovic added eight points and Sam Brown had four.

"I was happy to see everyone play meaningful minutes and get on the score sheet," said Mowry.  "We will get back after it in practice and get ready to play a tough, athletic ASA Miami team on Saturday."

The Saints game against ASA Miami will take place at the SF Gym on Saturday at 4:00 p.m.
