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.
