ish with 11 points, and Hill, Poad and Queen Anne’s Meagan Lukehart, who canned one three-pointer apiece.
Still, while the former teammates smiled and laughed with each other, it was a bit odd playing for the same side again.
“You know it’s different, but I love it,” Moran said. “I like playing with my competitors. It was a good time.
“There’s times where we don’t go to the ball, or we don’t read each other, but that’s just part of being on a different team,” Moran continued. “But that’s the point of this whole thing: bringing everybody together from the North.”
Moran and Dobson splashed back-to-back three-balls to open the second half and extend the North’s cushion to 35-22. Behind the inside play of Parkside’s Sarah Dabipi (team-high 14 points) and Tormesha Battle’s threepointer with 5:33 remaining in the third quarter, the South shaved its deficit to 36-32.
But the North quickly restored its double-digit lead. Patchett (six points) converted a Hill dish for a layup. Dobson hit a pair of free throws. And Hill (seven points) drained her only three-pointer for a 43-32 lead.
The South drew within eight by the end of three, but again the North expanded its lead. Hill hit a baseline jumper before Moran hit consecutive threes, giving the North its biggest lead at 51-35 with 8 minutes remaining.Pocomoke’s Deshonda Dennis scored the South’s first points of the final period when she hit a three-pointer with a little over 7 minutes remaining. Snow Hill’s Janara Fauntleroy’s putback got the South within 11, but Poad (five points) canned a three-pointer, and the teams played evenly the rest of the way.
Notes: Pritchett and Lukehart each finished with five points, while Queen Anne’s teammates Madison Ascione and Kailey Boomer finished with three and two points, respectively . ... Stephen Decatur’s Savannah Shultz had 13 points.
