DENVER — The Lincolnton Wolves boys varsity basketball team appeared poised to play a close game against the East Lincoln Mustangs after going into the halftime break facing a 25-21 deficit on Friday.
But shots stopped falling for the Wolves in the second half and the Mustangs pulled ahead for a 74-46 win in Southern Piedmont 1A/2A Conference play.
East Lincoln freshman Chazz Surratt piled on 24 points with 15 rebounds and seven assists. The Mustangs (15-6, 8-4) placed two other players in double figures — junior Domonique Smith scored 12 points and senior Tyler Brock added 11 points.
Colby Pridmore led the way for Lincolnton (10-10, 6-6) with 11 points.
The Mustangs won the battle of the free throw line, making 15 of 22 attempts while Lincolnton mustered nine of 14 attempts.
The teams played to a 14-12 East Lincoln lead at the end of the first quarter. Lincolnton’s Alonzo Mobley added a free throw on a technical foul called against East Lincoln before the start of the game and Ketawan Ingram banked in a layup to give the Wolves a 3-0 lead.
But Brock knocked down a 3-pointer to tie the game moments later.
The Mustangs began to pull ahead at the end of the first half, and went on a 9-2 run in the final three minutes of the second quarter to take the lead at halftime.
East Lincoln held Lincolnton to eight third-quarter points and outscored the Wolves 26-17 in the fourth quarter.
East Lincoln recognized seniors Brock, Addison Parrish and Garrett Young before the game and honored head coach Neil Hodges, the winningest coach in school history.
