Despite 11 first-quarter turnovers, East rallied from a nine-point second quarter deficit (22-13) to tie the game (22-22) with two minutes remaining in the half. Mount Tabor, now 14-3, scored the last five points before the halftime break, then ran off 12 straight in the first 3:15 of the third quarter to assume their biggest lead (39-22) & take control of the game.

Spartans guard Quest Aldridge had a double-double against East (14 points, 10 assists) to lead the winners while Jakob & Jayland Moore combined for 27 points and 10 rebounds to support Isaiah Wilkins’ game-high 17 points for Mount Tabor. The aggressive Mount Tabor defense forced East Forsyth into a season-high 24 turnovers.

Shemar Watkins led the Eagles, now 12-4, with 16 points while Tyren Hairston added 10 points & nine rebounds. East Forsyth, which returns to Central Piedmont 4A Conference action Friday night at home against Davie County, played the Mount Tabor game without second-leading scorer Josh Mahaffey & three other players battling the flu.
