The hosting Pirates built a 31-22 lead at halftime. Northside whittled the deficit to three, 41-38, going into the fourth quarter. The Panthers outscored Perquimans 14-8 in the final period to escape with the win.

Northside hosted Manteo on Wednesday for its final non-conference outing prior to a Friday-night trip to Riverside.
