North Rowan

SPENCER — North Rowan’s Brevin Goodlett needed 19 points for 1,000 for his career and got them in a hurry — by the end of the first quarter.

Goodlett reached the milestone on a 3-pointer. He finished with 25 points in Friday’s 72-39 blowout of Yadkin Valley Conference basketball opponent South Davidson.

“Scoring 1,000 points, it’s a big achievement, it’s tough to do,” North coach Jason Causby said. “I coached Salisbury for 10 seasons, coached a lot of really good players, but I only had two kids score 1,000 in that time.”

Goodlett scored 180 as a varsity freshman at East, added another 180 as a sophomore at North and pumped in 371 as a junior. He’s having his best season as a senior and has scored 275 points in 14 games for a county-leading 19.6 points per game.

Causby really wanted Goodlett to get to 1,000 at home and he wanted him to take care of it Friday night. Now the Cavaliers can focus on  their road game at Albemarle, one of the contenders in the YVC.

Dayjuwon Cooke added 15 points for the Cavaliers (12-2, 7-0), who have won five in a row.

Thomas Ellington scored 15 for the Wildcats (1-13, 0-6).

 

S. DAVIDSON (39) — T. Ellington 15, Byerly 6, J. Ellington 6, DeLattre 5, Hicks 4, Buie 2, Jernigan 1.

N. ROWAN (72) — Goodlett 25, Cooke 15, Davis 9, Page 8, Robinson 7, Goodes 6, Wilson 2.

S. Davidson      10    14    8   7 —   39

N. Rowan        30    26   10   6   — 72

 

Carson-East Rowan

CHINA GROVE — Sophomore Javon Smith enjoyed a career game with 20 points and Carson also got 20 from senior Cole Perry in a 67-46 win against rival East Rowan.

The Cougars led only 31-29 at halftime but dominated the second half of the North Piedmont Conference contest.

Carson beat East for the 10th time in a row.

“It’s a big one for us,” Carson coach Brian Perry said. “We really needed to win our two home games this week and we got  both of them. It was a good week, a great way to start the conference season.”

Carson (7-8, 2-0) is tied for first with Statesville.

Smith got Carson started with a couple of 3-pointers, and then AJ Mauldin (15 points) got hot. The Mustangs (8-7, 1-1) battled back behind a hot streak by David Jordan (14 points) and trailed by two at the break.

But the Cougars controlled the second half. Perry made key shots and Smith made free throws as the Cougars pulled away.

Carson was able to hold East’s athletic 6-foot-7 big man Elton Hooper to 10 points.

“The plan was to take it at him, try to get him in foul trouble,” Coach Perry said. “He got some fouls and had to sit some. And I thought our guys did a good job defensively on him. EJ Clark did a good job against Hooper in the Christmas tournament and worked hard to limit him again. And Jake Harris also did a good job defensively.”

Carson lost Cole Hales early to an ankle injury.

EAST (46) — Jordan 14, Hooper 10, Bennett 9, Hinceman 7, Pinckney 4, Jefferson 2, Sprinkle, Shuping, Padgett.

CARSON (67) — Smith 20, Perry 20, Mauldin 15, Clark 7, Zuniga 3, Spry 2, Hales, Jackson, Washington, Harris, Allen.

E. Rowan   9     20    10   7    — 46

Carson       11   20     19  17   — 67

 

West Rowan

TROUTMAN — Payne Stolsworth made seven 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to give West Rowan a chance, but the Falcons lost at South Iredell on Friday.

Senior Ty Everhart led the Vikings (8-6, 1-1) with 34 points in the North Piedmont Conference contest.

Zack Brawley added 17 for West, while Bryson Moss had 11.

West (2-13, 0-2)  trailed 12-0 at the outset and was still down 45-31 at halftime.

The Falcons put together a big run in the third quarter, tied the game at 56-all and went up by a single point after three quarters.

West led 76-73 with a little over a minute to go, but the Vikings scored the last seven points of the game.

WEST (76) — Stolsworth 33, Brawley 17, Moss 11, Butler 8, Tadlock 5, Hassard 2, Brush.

S. IREDELL (80) — Everhart 34, Dowdy 15, Liechty 12, Edds 9, Dulin 7. Aeschliman 3.

W. Rowan     17   14   26   19   — 76

S. Iredell        24   21   11   24    — 80

WINSTON-SALEM — Davie County finally got Central Piedmont Conference started on Friday and got off on the right foot.

The War Eagles rolled at R.J. Reynolds, 79-67.

Davie was great out of the gate and led 24-12 after the first quarter.

Jacob Hendrix scored a season-high 21 to lead the War Eagles (12-1, 1-0). Owen McCormack (17), Brooks Johnson (15), Troy Griggs (13) and Michael Walton (11) also were in double figures.

Walton, a senior, is closing in on 1,000 career points. He has 981.

Mysta Goodloe led the Demons (4-9, 0-1) with 21 points.

DAVIE (79) — Hendrix 21, McCormack 17, Johnson 15, Griggs 13, Walton 11, Smith 2.

A.L. Brown

KANNAPOLIS — A.L. Brown hung with powerful Cox Mill for a quarter on Friday, but that was it.

Duke recruit Wendell Moore Jr. scored 31 points and Charlotte-bound Caleb Stone-Carrawell had 19 in a 92-60 romp against the Wonders at Bullock Gym.

Cox Mill (14-1, 2-0) is ranked 26th nationally and first in the state for all classifications. The Chargers broke it open with a 32-point second quarter.
