Girls basketball: Thomasville’s 2nd-half run leads to victory at Salisbury

SALISBURY — The Thomasville girls embarked on a 13-2 run to open the second half Friday at Salisbury and claimed a 44-31 Central Carolina Conference win over the Hornets.

Salisbury (4-18, 2-6 CCC) was hanging close to the Bulldogs thanks to the defense and shooting of Maria Capito and Katy Wolfe, trailing just 16-12 at the half.

But the Bulldogs (13-6, 4-4 CCC) scored the first 11 points of the third quarter behind Micaela Williams and Christina Coleman and led 29-16 with just under two minutes left in the period.

The Hornets got as close as eight after that behind the scoring of Tyzarea Alexander  but never challenged down the stretch as Thomasville hit seven of nine foul shots in the closing minutes. Salisbury was also hampered by 16 turnovers against the quickness and pressure defense of the Bulldogs

Thomasville, which is now firmly in third place in the CCC standings, was led by Coleman and Williams with 11 each. Alexander led the Hornets’ effort with nine followed by Capito and Julia Honeycutt with eight each.

Salisbury will look to bounce back against West Davidson at home net Tuesday while Thomasville will host North Rowan in a key CCC game.

THOMASVILLE (44):Coleman 11, Williams 11, Stengenga 8, Long 7, Johnson 4, Miler 3, Gammons, Burgess.

SALISBURY (31): Alexander 9, Honeycutt 8, Capito 8, Wolfe 5, Caldwell 1, Hightower, Philpott, Jones

Thomasville 12  4 15 13 — 44

Salisbury 7  5 11  8 — 31
