For the girls, Jasmine Wilson scored 22 points to lead the Lady Eagles. Twelve of those came in the first quarter as Northside actually trailed late, 12-8. That was thanks in part to a 6-0 run by the Lady Trojans.
Cierra Gordon who finished with nine for the Lady Eagles then hit the next basket. Tia Williams – 10 points – tied it at 12.
A timeout was called to which Jasmine Wilson came back in to net the next three baskets. That led up to the buzzer and put the host up 18-12 after one.
Chan Fann – eight points – made it an eight-point lead. Wilson hit another shot before Fann made two free throws. Then it was Williams’ turn again and then Gordon’s as Northside didn’t stop until they had completed a 20-0 run and led 28-14.
That pretty much did the trick as it outscored Lee County 19-5 that quarter and led 37-17 at the half.
That lead was 53-29 after three. Williams and Fann’s free throws to start the fourth pushed it out to 57-29 before Lee County finally put up a bit of a fight. It, led by Daquenna Moore’s 21, outscored the Lady Eagles for the quarter, 21-14.
Chelsie Waters also had five for Northside. Sabrea Smith had four, as did Wykeria Fann. Ashley Williams and Anna Maddox each had two.
Trent Smith got the Eagles off and rolling in fine fashion in the nightcap when he slammed home the first two points.
Joe Sturn who led the home boys in scoring with 19 hit from the field following and Gary Lowe - 16 points - followed that with one basket inside and one outside the perimeter. That put Northside up 9-0. Lee County called a timeout but the damage had been done.
The Eagles led 20-9 after one and 39-25 at the half. Their lead heading into the fourth was 60-36 as 11 players netted points on the night.
The games were part of Region 1-AAAA but not part of the Sub-Region so did not county toward the standings.
