Davie County scored 12 of the final 13 points of the first half, breaking open a tight game & propelling the War Eagles to a 62-54 win over East Forsyth in Mocksville Tuesday night. In a game of scoring streaks by both teams, Davie’s late burst in the second quarter gave them a lead they never relinquished enroute to an important Central Piedmont 4A Conference victory.

East led early (6-0) but Davie scored 14 of the next 17 points to take a five-point lead (14-9) early in the second period. But the Eagles scored 12 of the next 16 points to take their last lead of the game (21-18) behind the inside play of Zyun Reeves, the leading scorer for EF with 17 points. Davie responded with it’s scoring burst to close the half & was never headed, though the Eagles clawed back & tied the game at 48 midway through the final period behind turnover-free play in the third quarter.

Zaharee Maddox, the game’s leading scorer with 18, helped seal the game down the stretch for the War Eagles with a pair of fast break baskets & three free throws as Davie pulled away for the win. James Reid added 15 for the winners & Zach Smith, though limited to only 2 points, grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds as DC dominated the boards including 19 on the offensive end.

Reeves had nine rebounds & six blocks to go with his 17 points in the balanced Eagles’ scoring while Will Rhodes & Jalen Thorns had 12 each & Ty Lyles added 11 & seven rebounds. East closes its regular season Friday with Senior Night at home in Kernersville before beginning play next week in the CPC Tournament at Reagan High School.
