Moberly improved to 15-0, while Bryant and Stratton dropped to 7-12 on the season.

“Coming off Christmas break I was relatively pleased with our performance," said MACC Coach Patrick Smith. "We got a little nonchalant in the second half vs. Bryant and Stratton, and they kept competing to their credit. However, it only gets a lot tougher and we must keep finding that next level. I’m looking forward to a week of practice and getting ready for what lies ahead.”

Moberly returns to action with a home game against College of Faith Prep on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 7:00 pm.
