Northwood jumped out to an 11-0 lead in the first three minutes of play and placed 10 players in the scoring column as the Lady Chargers took advantage of Western Harnett turnovers in cruising to a 54-32 non-conference victory Tuesday night in Lewis Norwood Gymnasium.

Chandler Adams and Myla Marve tallied a dozen points apiece for the winners, who climbed to 3-1 for the season. Northwood connected on 18-of-47 (38%) of its field goal attempts while committing 14 turnovers.

Lahaina Bell notched a game-high 14 points for the Lady Eagles, who fell to 2-3 overall. Western Harnett shot 11-of-36 (31%) from the floor and held a 33-26 advantage on the boards but turned the ball over 35 times.

Following the Lady Chargers’ 11-0 burst to open the contest, the Lady Eagles narrowed the gap to 12-6 with 3:40 left in the initial stanza on three-pointers by Bell and Taija Pruitt prior to Northwood closing out the period with a 7-2 spurt to regain an 11-point lead after one quarter.

Western Harnett managed to pull within 23-15 on Kayling Matson’s free throw with 2:35 to go in the first half before the Lady Chargers used a Marve foul shot and Adams’ turnaround jumper in the lane to fashion another 11-point advantage at the break.

Northwood’s lead ranged from nine to 14 points throughout the third quarter prior to the Lady Chargers entering the final 12 minutes up 35-24.

Natalie Bell’s charity toss with 1:57 remaining in the game then gave the victors their biggest spread of the evening at 52-28 before Northwood went on to close out its third win in a row over the Lady Eagles dating back to 2011.
