DORA — Two days after their 12-game winning streak came to an end, Clovis Christian’s boys found themselves on the short end again.
Dora outscored the Eagles 34-14 in the second half on Monday night en route to a 60-38 victory. CSC (12-4) saw its streak end on Saturday against Class 1A No. 1 Magdalena.
Junior Steven Mason scored 21 points for the Coyotes (8-7), while sophomore Paul Krishna added 14. Juniors Carter Teen and Noah Grecian paced the Eagles with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

In area boys games on Saturday:
Magdalena 82, Clovis Christian 37 — The Eagles added this game — played on a neutral court at Corona — only last week, and they perhaps couldn’t have picked a worse time to face the defending Class 1A state champion Steers.

Senior Jordan Miracle matched CSC by himself with 37 points, including nine of the team’s 14 3-point baskets. Four came in the first quarter, which ended with the Steers in front 22-7.

Junior Billy Blevins scored 22 points for Eunice (7-7), including 16 during the fourth-quarter rally. Senior Ovi Ontiveros added 11.
For Dora, Masini tallied 19 points and sophomore Cache Skelley chipped in 11.
