North Stanly girls continue unbeaten streak with 11th win

The Comets have matched an 11-0 record from last season

Showing no signs of slowing down, the North Stanly girls’ basketball team is continuing to roll through the season as the Comets (11-0) pulled out a 48-29 home win over the South Rowan Raiders (1-5) on Friday.

North has now defeated its opponents by at least 14 points each of its past six contests, holding the teams to under 30 points.

The undefeated Comets’ surging start to the schedule is reminiscent of their previous campaign where the team also won its first 11 games. However, North went on to lose five of its next 15 games as Albemarle jumped to the top of the Yadkin Valley Conference.

The Comets traveled to Forest Hills (3-4) on Monday and will have a break before hosting Union Academy (6-1) on Jan. 5.

West Stanly 67, South Stanly 24

Playing at home, the West Stanly Colts (3-5) snapped a three-game losing streak as they took down South Stanly in a 43-point rout of the Bulls (1-6).

The Colts’ 67 points marks a season-high total for the team through eight games. West’s second-highest scoring output (63 points) came in a road win over South on Dec. 1.

West will host Northwest Cabarrus (5-1) on Dec. 27, while South hosted Anson (1-8) on Tuesday and will return to action on Jan. 3 with a home game against Southwestern Randolph (7-1).

Albemarle (win by forfeit), Eastern Randolph

The Albemarle Bulldogs (5-1) hosted the Eastern Randolph Wildcats (1-6) on Friday, picking up their fifth win as the Wildcats were forced to forfeit the matchup.

Albemarle’s only loss this season came on Dec. 5 in an 87-72 road loss to North Rowan (4-1).

The Bulldogs are set to face Eastern Randolph on the road on Wednesday before heading to Parkwood (2-4) on Dec. 27.

Gray Stone 59, Corvian Community 21

Rebounding from a pair of losses earlier in the month, the Gray Stone Knights (5-4) won their second-straight game as they pulled out a 59-21 home victory over the Corvian Community Cardinals (1-5) on Wednesday.

Gray Stone has been outscored in total by its opponents this season but now carry on with a winning record.

The Knights have the rest of the month off before returning to the court on Jan. 3 in a home game versus East Rowan (3-4).
