MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Stratford's boys basketball team scored a 79-65 home win over visiting The Masters Academy Thursday.
TMA, out of Oviedo, Florida, was on a mission trip. The Eagles lost at Westfield last Saturday on their way to their destination before taking on the Eagles Thursday in Macon. They're set to be back home Friday.
It was 42-40, but thanks to efforts like Quintez Cephus' 28 points, Stratford (13-2) pulled away in the second half. It didn't come without a great effort from TMA (10-9), which managed several three pointers in the second half.
Next up for Stratford is a home game against Macon Area Christian on Tuesday.
