Northern Tops Western 70-35 on Senior Night
February 8, 2012By Jim Scruggs of Western Alamance High School
Erin Scruggs, Hannah, Scruggs, and Jemicka Herbin took the floor on Irma Evans Court for the last time Tuesday night as the Lady Warriors closed out its home schedule hosting the Northern Guilford Lady Nighthawks.
The three seniors and their families took part in a post game ceremony honoring all seniors participating in winter sports.
Unfortunately, it was not a very memorable night from a basketball perspective as Northern denied the Warriors who pursued, on Senior Night, their first win of this season.
Western started the game playing in a controlled and confident manner and kept things close through the first quarter. In the second quarter, however, Northern methodically increased their lead to double digits and continued to add to their margin throughout the remainder of the game, settling for a 70-35 final.
Kierra James and Alexis Dickerson both payed well, leading Western with 15 and 11 points, respectfully. Kianna Davis added 3, M. Riddie 4, and Hannah Scruggs 2, rounding out the Warrior scoring.
The Warriors will face Cummings High School tonight in a game that was rescheduled from exam week and will close out its regular season Friday night at Eden Morehead.
