Van Meter took their first loss of the season Saturday night against a well tested Pella Christian team. Van Meter fell behind 6-0 in the first minute and trailed 16-6 after the first quarter. The second quarter was fairly even as it was tough sledding for both teams offensively, but Pella Christian hit a three at the buzzer to lead by 14 at the break. Van Meter had a strong 3rd quarter to cut the lead to 8, but never got any closer and Pella Christian put the Bulldogs away with a strong 4th quarter to earn the 53-38 victory. Van Meter was led by Ryan Schmitt with 11 and Anthony Potthoff had 10.
