Looking back at Day Two at the Pizza Hut Invitational Tournament, we had the following results with the shocker of:(One part of the Day Two news is that both #1’s, Greensboro Day and Northwest Guilford, are gone after Round Two at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center.)
Northern Guilford 53
Greensboro Day School 51…..
*****We knew the NG boys would play well, but could they take out the defending champs? They did and now Northern has a team in the finals for the first time ever at the Pizza Hut Invitational…..
Jonathan Frye was doing a ton of things to help the NG Nighthawk cause and he along with Dylan Berry gave the young Nighthawks so critical senior leadership…..*****
Northeast 50….I told Tom Keller of the News and Record after the games were complete today, that it could have easily been Greensboro Day and Northeast Guilford in the boy’s finals on Saturday night. NEG led Grimsley 35-25 at the half and then Grimsley out-scored the Rams 35-15 in the second half…..
How much will the injury of Burrell Brown effect Grimsley in the finals on Saturday night. The last time Grimsley was in the finals was 1997 and their topped Eastern Guilford for the title that year and the Whirlies’ MVP in the Championship game was Walker Holt…
With the girls it was:
Northwest Guilford 41….Both #1 seeds are gone with NWG falling on the girls side and GDS going down in the boys bracket….
Northern Guilford 41…..You never know which Smith girls team will show up, but the right for the Golden Eagles sure was at the Coliseum this afternoon…..
