Eastern Guilford shreds Williams boys

GIBSONVILLE — Four players scored in double figures and Eastern Guilford cruised to a 78-47 Mid-State 3-A Conference victory against Williams High School in boys’ basketball Friday night.
The Wildcats (7-5 overall, 1-2 Mid-State 3-A Conference) were led by D.J. Caudle’s 18 points. Caleb Robinson added 15 points, Ronardo Goodman scored 12 points, and Quayson Williams had 10 points.
“I’m happy with the win,” said Eastern Guilford coach Joseph Spinks. “It feels good to get that first conference win, and we are happy to get that behind us.”
Eastern Guilford came out of the locker room ready to play. It didn’t take long for the Wildcats to build a commanding lead. Eastern Guilford’s defense stymied Williams early, and the Bulldogs had a hard time with their shots falling.
After the first quarter, Williams (2-7, 1-2) found itself behind 21-6. Caudle, who scored seven points in the first quarter, outscored the Bulldogs alone.
In the second quarter, the Bulldogs only had two shots fall, but managed to knock down five free throws. It could have been a different story, as Williams missed nine shots from the foul line in the second quarter. Eastern Guilford led 41-15 at the half.
“We came out together and played well as a team,” Robinson said. “We were able to move well, and we have been working all week to move the ball and get our offense to start moving. It worked in the first half and were able to work together.”
In the third quarter, the Williams trio of Omar Bigelow, Ben Kelley and Elijah Moore took advantage of Eastern Guilford’s defense, attacking the middle and finally getting the chance for some open shots.
“Williams did a good job of breaking our zone defense,” Spinks said. “They were able to rebound the ball very well as they started to find their shot. That’s one of the things that we will need to work on this week in practice, covering the middle and rebounding.”
The Bulldogs outscored Eastern Guilford 24-19 in the third quarter. Moore had seven points, Kelley added six, and Bigelow had five.
Eastern Guilford found some defense again in the fourth quarter, doubling up the Bulldogs 16-8.
“I’m proud of our effort,” Spinks said. “We saw two young teams having to start over, and we did a good job of building on that with the win.”
