A stellar season for the Chatham Charter boy’s basketball team continued here on Friday night in Siler City.

The Knights rode a 20 points performance by Connor Murphy to improve to 7-1 in 1A Central Tar Heel Conference play and to 20-1 overall with a decisive 68-50 thumping of Clover Garden.

Chatham Charter played about as well as it possibly could in the opening quarter as the locals pumped in 26 points to take a 15-point lead after one.

“Our guys came focused and ready to play on both end tonight and we play very well in the first period,” said CC coach Jason Messier. “We slowed down a bit in the second offensively, but defensively we were still very aggressive and limited Clover Garden to six points.”

The stifling defensive effort in the second led to a 36-17 cushion at the half for the Knights who then outscored the Grizzlies 19-14 in the third to go up 55-31 before cruising to the easy 18-point victory.

In addition to his 20 points, Murphy added four rebounds and two steals while Jordan Hamilton chipped in 13 points, eight rebounds and one assist.

Chatham Charter also received 10 points, four rebounds and two assists for Cole Milholen while Tyler Dettmer contributed eight points, and 12 rebounds, and Dustin Cook two points and six rebounds, and Kolby Riddle four boards.

Noah Tickle and Matt Hall led Clover Garden with 15 points while Heath Worsham chipped in 13.
