Hamilton, Chatham Charter power by Falls

Posted

Jordan Hamilton powered in 33 points and pulled down 14 rebounds on Friday night in Siler City to lead Chatham Charter to a convincing 73-47 victory over Falls Lake Academy.

Hamilton, a junior, was 12-of-14 from the field and 9-of-10 from the charity stripe in leading the Knights who improved to 2-0 on the young season with the win.

“Jordan had a monster game inside for us,” said Chatham Charter coach Jason Messier. “Much like our first game of the season, we dictated the play tonight with our defense which led to some easy baskets on the offensive end.”

A.J. Alston chipped in 16 points for the Knights while Cole Milholen and Connor Murphy added eight and seven points respectively.

Falls Lake traded blow for blow with Chatham Charter in the opening period as the Knights outscored the Firebirds just 21-17 in the frame.

Hamilton was at it early, striking for nine points in the opening stanza while Alston added eight, including a pair of treys.

Evan Snow had eight points, including a pair of three-pointers, and Colson Teal seven more on the strength of a trey, for the Firebirds.

In the second quarter, the offense slowed down as Hamilton collected five points to offset five from Falls Lake Academy’s Caleb Gudak as Chatham Charter took a precarious 31-27 lead into the intermission.

That lead exploded in the 3rd period for the Knights, however, as the locals blew the game wide open with a 27-11 surge ignited by 10 points from Hamilton and five more from Milholen and Alston each, both of whom canned a trey. Murphy added four more points for Chatham Charter.

Teal countered with four points and Cameron Copley a trey, but it was far from enough for the Firebirds who entered the fourth and final period starting at a 58-38 deficit.
Hamilton would pump in eight more points for Chatham Charter in the fourth as the hosts cruised to the 73-47 blowout win.

Falls Lake Academy saw three players strike for double figures in the contest with Teal collecting a team-high 13, and Cudak and Snow chipping in 11 and 10 respectively in the loss.

Chatham Charter was scheduled to travel to Uwharrie Charter on Tuesday night before hosting the same bunch on Friday night in Siler City.

On Monday evening Chatham Charter heads to Ramseur to battle Faith Christian before entertaining East Wake Academy on Tuesday.
