Lady Seahawks improve to 2-0

SWAN QUARTER — Southside earned its second-straight convincing win to open the season. The Lady Seahawks traveled to Mattamuskeet on Monday and decimated the winless Lady Lakers, 63-18.

Symone Ruffin led Southside in scoring for the second time in as many games. After tallying 17 at Bear Grass, the senior scored 20 in the landslide win. She also had eight steals and five assists. Fellow senior Michaela Dixon added 10 points.

Sophomore Shantel Cannon had seven points. Six freshmen made it onto the score sheet.

Southside was scheduled to host Tarboro for its home opener on Friday, but the likelihood of that game taking place is up in the air due to the Vikings’ football team playing for a state championship on Saturday.


Southside earns first win

SWAN QUARTER — Demetrius Ebron, who led Southside in scoring a year ago, notched 17 points to direct the Seahawks to their first win of the season — a 75-46 drubbing at Mattamuskeet on Monday.

Sophomroe forward Ivory Moore scored 14 in the win. Southside opened up a 24-4 lead in the first quarter and coasted from there.

Southside had been slated to host Tarboro for its first home game on Friday. That game will be rescheduled due to the Vikings playing for the 1-AA football championship the following day.


Raiders, TEACH meet on hardwood

Pungo and TEACH went head-to-head Monday. TEACH handled the Raiders, 67-45, in varsity-boys action. The Raiders took the junior-varsity girls (21-13), boys (44-38) and varsity girls’ games (51-26).

Ryan Bishop (11), Ben Simmons (11) and Brent Benson (10) each scored in double digits in the varsity boys’ loss.

Emma Allen scored 14 to lead the varsity girls to a lopsided win. Brinson Edmundson and Ashley Spencer also scored 10 apiece. Emily Spencer had seven, Riley Cutler had six, Lauren Kellie Ricks had three and Rebecca Hodges added one point.

Devin Cadle and Wilson Sawyer combined for 27 points to lead the JV boys to victory. Miller Lee had seven and H Allen and Davis Lee each added five.

Morgan Burroughs and Emma Williams combined for 15 of Pungo’s 21 points to help the Lady Raiders’ JV team win a low-scoring affair. Tiffany Renwick, Haley Williott and Hannah VanStaalduinen each had two.

Pungo now has a two-game home stand ahead. The Raiders hosted Albemarle School on Tuesday and are home against Hobgood Academy on Friday.
