Ripon Christian’s boys basketball team used a 16-6 third-quarter run to race away from Calaveras 55-46 in a winners-bracket semifinal of the Riverbank High Ron Peterson Tip-Off Tournament.

The Knights (2-0) will take on the tournament host in the championship game tonight at 7.

“We got on a little bit of a roll there (in the third quarter),” RC coach Ron Vander Molen said. “We had pretty balanced scoring and played good defense, and Dan Vos took charge down the stretch.”

Vos finished with a game-high 16 points and eight assists. Jon Vander Molen was also key in crunch time, hitting six of seven free throws on his way to 14 points and eight rebounds. Dalton Koslosky contributed 10 rebounds and three steals.

Kyle Gouveia and Wyatt Madrid scored 12 and 11 points, respectively, to lead Calaveras (1-1).
