PITTSBORO - Northwood raced
out to a 17-7 advantage after one period
and was never seriously threatened
while outscoring Northern
Guilford as the Chargers trampled
their cold-shooting visitors from
Greensboro 58-35 in a first-ever
meeting Saturday afternoon in Lewis
Norwood Gymnasium.

The winners improved to 11-4
for the year with the easy victory,
while the Nighthawks dropped to
6-9 overall.

Deuce Powell topped Northwood
with 16 points and Adam Omar
pumped in 15 as the Chargers shot
23-of-46 (50%) from the floor
and held a 28-24 advantage on the
boards while only turning the ball
over nine times.

Northern Guilford was led by
Adonijah Whitley’s 10 points as the
Nighthawks connected on just 12-
of-43 (28%) of their shots from the
floor while committing 11 turnovers.

Jackson Helms’ three-pointer from
the left wing less than a minute-anda-
half into the contest gave Northern
Guilford its only lead at 3-1 before Northwood  seized the advantage for good at 6-3
following an Aaron Ross
trey from the left side barely
a minute later.

With Powell, Omar and
Aaron Ross teaming up
for 26 first-half points,
the Chargers expanded
their 10-point lead after
one quarter into as much
as a 23-point advantage
(39-16) following Omar’s
three-pointer from the left
wing with 54.4 seconds to
go until intermission.

After settling for a 39-20
spread at halftime, Northwood’s
third-period advantage
ranged between 19 and
21 points, with the winners
eventually carrying a 48-27
lead into the final stanza.

The Chargers continued to
slowly extend their advantage
throughout the fourth
quarter and forged their biggest
lead of the day at 58-31
following Jack Thompson’s
lane put-back with 1:43
remaining to play.
