Cavaliers rout Wolves

The Lincolnton Wolves faced the No. 2 team in the state Tuesday night in the East Rutherford Cavaliers. The result was a 79-45 drubbing.
Given the Cavaliers are now 15-0 on the season; the Wolves shouldn’t be too dismayed. Lincolnton head coach Bob Cowie was pleased with his team’s effort.
“We played hard, but we also found out why they’re the No. 2 ranked team in the state. They beat us in all phases of the game,” he said.
P.J. Hamright led Lincolnton with 10 points.
The Wolves fall to 6-10 and 4-3 in the Midwest 2A. They will host Newton-Conover on Friday.

West Lincoln
Martin Turbeville’s 27 points helped Bunker Hill beat West Lincoln 63-53 Tuesday.
“He’s a real strong kid and creates a lot of space around the block. He has the skill to finish down there as well,” Rebels’ head coach Chad Wright said.
“We played hard and were competitive. I’m proud of that; we didn’t last week,” Wright added.
Bunker Hill 10 14 17 22-63
West Lincoln 6 8 23 16-53
BEARS: Miller 7, Brown 6, Martin Turbeville 27, Patterson 9, Jordan Kaylor 12, Patterson 1, Williams 2.
