DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

Western Christian raced out to 10-0 lead two minutes into their Class 2A first round matchup meeting with Albia and breezed to a first round win, 76-53.

Halfway thru the first quarter the lead stretched out to 17-3. Taylor Miedema and Taylor Feenstra combined for 20 first quarter points for the Wolfpack in route to a 26-12 lead.  Western continued to control tempo and shoot the ball well from the field as they rolled to a 46-24 lead at halftime.

The Miedema and Feesntra duo combined for 29 points while Matt Baker would lead the Blue Demons with 10 points. 

Albia battled back to within 10 points in the third quarter, 56-46, but Western showed its muscle down the stretch as they pulled away behind the game-high 26 points and 20 rebound performance by Feenstra to improve to 25-0.

"That's the goal -- the state championhip," Feenstra said.  "I've never been here, a lot of people on our team have never been here.  Obviously, we have a very experienced coaching staff but for us players, that's our ultimate goal."

Western Christian will play either #6 Western Dubuque or unranked South Hamilton in the Class 2A semfinals on Thursday at 2:00 PM.
