Northern Guilford split a pair of contests with Eastern Alamance on Friday night.

After trailing early, the Lady Nighthawks (18-1, 9-0 Central Carolina Conference) pulled away for a 63-54 victory.

The Northern boys led most of the way against the Eagles, but a putback and a block at the end lifted Eastern Alamance to a 68-66 win.

The Nighthawks staked themselves to a quick 10-point lead in the first quarter and held the advantage for most of the nightcap.

Malik Prioleau scored with 28 seconds remaining to knot the game at 66-all. On the ensuing possession, Eastern Alamance's Jalyn Riley missed a shot, but teammate Sae'Quahan Rogers was there for the putback with 4.6 seconds remaining.

After a timeout, Northern's T.J. Logan drove to the basket, but his shot was blocked by Riley as time expired.

Logan scored 20 points in the loss while Prioleau added 14 points. Jaray McCain and Marcus Curry each tossed in 13 points.

On the girls' side, the nine-member Northern team, playing its third game in a week, came out sluggishly but woke up after trailing early. The Lady Nighthawks led by as many as eight points in the second quarter before Eastern Alamance came back to grab a brief 33-31 lead in the third.

Northern roared back and took a 41-35 edge into the final quarter and added to the advantage to post the 63-54 win.

Gabby Boyd and Aliyah Grinage each scored 17 points for Northern while Amanda Coffer added 13 in the winning effort.
