More boys to add in:Grimsley 54, Southern Guilford 43…New Garden Friends School 69, Caldwell Academy 65…..
Here is a piggyback score on the Page-NWG girls:Final score-St. Pius varsity girls 43, Greensboro Day 27. Our reporter says, “it was a much closer game than the score indicates.”…Should make St. Pius(11-0)…
Northwest Guilford 37
1st Q:Page 13, NWG 3…Halftime:Page 25, NWG 12…
Page Scoring:Paris Kea 27 points to lead all scorers…Tiana Sherman had 11, Emily Casper 7, Chardee Carter 4, while Vivian Polite and Campbell Kargo had three points each for the Pirates…
Northwest Guilford scoring:Morgan Pointer led the way with 11 points, Hayley Barber had 7, Savanah Neas and Toni Tucker had 5 each, Hunter Newman had 4 points, Catherine Moore had 3 and Katherine Langtson had 2….Looking to get all the names correct, we hope…
Was thinking about it during the game and Paris Kea looked real good and she made her teammates look even better…A theory I had said if Paris gets 30 points and you hold her Page teammates to 10 points or less, you have a chance to win..Only problem is Paris was right at 30 tonight(27) points, and she set her Pirate teammates up they got 28 and then you still got beat and you need to surpass 40 points to make the theory work and NWG was just at 37….Northwest would have had their best chance to attack inside with Pointer and Newman, but the problem is, Kea and Sherman do a very good job of dropping down and helping out…And with Kea and Sherman, you have two veteran guards that are tall and they can help with with post and inside defense….(Theory says you have to try and beat them 50-40 with Paris at 30 and Page teammates at 10, and then you have to get 50 and that looks to be a tall order right now in early December…
We may be breaking this down way too much here early in the season, but the TIMCO Tournament is coming up and who will offer the best challenge to the Defending Champions, the Page Pirate girls??? We saw NWG fall tonight and NWG just beat Northern Guilford on Tuesday, so right now, I don’t think it will be Ragsdale, Grimsley, Northeast or Smith….Smith has a new coach and you would think that they are re-building again…Grimsley and Northeast are still in the re-building mode…
So that leaves the Greensboro Day School at (6-0) to start the season and Page at (4-0) to begin the year as the two with the best shot to make it to the finals….I may be wrong again, but that is why I am still trying to figure it all out…..Northwest Guilford is still maybe a year or two from putting it all back together, but you never know, somebody out there at the Coliseum in late December, like a Page or GDS, may have a bad night and that is why they play the games and that is why we love to write about them and talk about them year-round….
Here is the score for tonight’s Ragsdale HS at SE Guilford HS Varsity Boy’s game. Courtesy of Ragsdale assistant coach Brandon Mullis…Tie game at the end of one and at halftime, 15-15, but Ragsdale opened it up in the second half to nail down the victory….
Ragsdale 5 10 25 22 62 SE Guilford 5 10 11 17 43
