Havelock 46

The Havelock Rams tried everything they could and used every tool they had to try and overcome the Eagles Friday – but it was too much Jamie Cherry.

Cherry scored 31 of West Craven’s 54 points in a 54-46 Coastal Conference win over one of its biggest rivals.

Cherry also grabbed 10 rebounds for a double-double and had five assists.

The Havelock girls made a spirited comeback attempt that fell just short and featured a strategic and timeout chess match between West Craven’s David Fernandez and Havelock’s Anna Spear.

Nishedra Brown scored 10 points in aid of Cherry.

“We showed a lot of toughness tonight and we have been preaching it and the girls really brought it to the floor tonight,” Fernandez said. “I called those two timeouts to tell the girls to keep playing through it all and that the scoreboard was all that matters.”
