Girls basketball: Salisbury thumps Lexington

By Mike Duprez

The Lexington Dispatch

A 19-point second quarter propelled Salisbury to a 22-point win Tuesday at Lexington.  The Hornets pounded the Yellow Jackets 49-27.

Balance was the key for Salisbury (4-17, 2-5 CCC) as Maria Capito, Breya Philpott and Bryanna Caldwell each scored 11 points.

Angelica Rice led Lexington (5-12, 2-5 CCC) with nine points and Kahari Sanders had seven. The Jackets dressed just nine players. Among the missing was injured starter Emerson Hayes.

Lexington kept it close for just over a quarter. The Jackets trailed 10-8 after the first eight minutes and were within 15-11 with six minutes left in the half when Rice hit one of two free throws.

But then the Hornets busted it wide open with an 18-0 run that spanned the second and third quarters as Capito hit a pair of 3-pointers and Caldwell sank one from long range. By the time Caldwell drove coast-to-coast for a layup, it was 33-11 early in the third quarter and the game was out of reach for Lexington.

Salisbury hosts Thomasville on Friday while Lexington visits East Davidson that same night.

 

Salisbury 10  19  11 9 – 49
Lexington 8  3  8  8 – 27
Salisbury (49) Capito 11, Philpot 11, Caldwell 11, Honeycutt 6, Jones 3, Alexander 5, Hightower 2.
Lexington (27) Rice 9, Sanders 7, Henderson 6, Vaughan 3, Friday 2.
