Camden Fuquay tallied 10 of his team-high 20 points in the second quarter, including the basket that put Jordan-Matthews ahead to stay midway through the frame, as the Jets completed a sweep of their season series with arch-rival
Chatham Central for the first time since 2015 by posting a 54-43 non-conference triumph Wednesday evening in Gerald L. Binkley Gymnasium.

The victory evened J-M’s record at 3-3, while the Bears dropped to 1-5 overall.
Joining Fuquay in double figures for the winners were Seth Moore and Huston Causey, who totaled 11 points apiece, as Jordan-Matthews connected on 16-of-36 (44%) of its field goal attempts and held a 20-19 edge in rebounds while turning the ball over 10 times.

Michael Moore fired in a game-high 23 points for Chatham Central, which shot 12-of-38 (32%) from the floor while committing nine turnovers.
With Michael Moore scoring all of his team’s points in the first 4:15 of play, the Bears surged to an early 8-2 lead before three-pointers from Seth Moore and Fuquay helped to pull the Jets within 13-10 after one period.

Fuquay’s drive off the left baseline with 4:09 remaining in the second stanza then broke a 17-all stalemate and ignited a 16-7 quarter-ending run that propelled J-M into a 33-24 advantage at halftime.

Following a layup by Jordan-Matthews’ Brayden Teague to start the third period, Chatham Central trimmed its deficit to 35-29 on Jamieon Degraffenreaidt’s layup with 3:52 left in the frame prior to Seth Moore’s trey from the left wing and two Fuquay charity tosses that sent the Jets into the fourth quarter with an 11-point lead.

After back-to-back hoops by the Bears’ Nik Wilson narrowed the gap to 43-35 with 5:11 to go in the contest, a pair of Fuquay foul shots culminated an 8-3 J-M burst that gave Jordan-Matthews its biggest advantage of the night at 51-38 with 44 seconds left and Chatham Central never got closer than 10 in the time remaining.
