PITTSBORO — Gianna McManaman and Natalie Bell collected 11 points apiece here Friday night in Pittsboro to spark Northwood to a 56-16 rout of hapless Western Harnett in area non-conference girl’s basketball action.

“Good win and we were able to work on some things we put in this week on defense (1-3-1 trap),” said Vernon. “But it was our first home game finally after having a number of away non-conference games so it was important to the girls to perform well in front of the home crowd and I think they did that.”

The Lady Chargers moved to 4-3 overall with the victory after outscoring the visiting Eagles 12-4 in the opening period behind five points from Jy Smith including a trey, four more from Bland, and a 3-pointer from Mckenna Snively. Makiya Mackey had all four points for the Eagles in the opening quarter.

McManaman was a highlight show in the second quarter with nine points including a trey to spark an 18-1 run by the Chargers to send the locals up by a commanding 30-5 count at the intermission.

Natalie Bell and Rae McClarty both tallied 4 points in the third to ignite a 17-2 run to send the Chargers up 47-7 entering the final stanza.

Bell pumped in 5 more in the fourth including a trey to make the final 56-16.

Caitlin Bailey chipped in eight rebounds in the win for Northwood while McManaman and Smith each added three steals.

Mackey paced Western Harnett with six points.

“It’s good to see the scoring distribution amongst the team tonight,” closed Vernon. “We have a quick turnaround as we play Jordan Mathews tomorrow and I know they are going to be hungry when the come here tomorrow. So we have got to be prepared and bring the same energy they will have.”
