S. Stanly girls top Comets; North boys win

South Stanly guard Chelsey Culp has been a stalwart all season long for the Rebel Bulls on the offensive side of the game, having led the Bulls on offense numerous times. None of the shots she has made all season long were likely as big as a bank-shot three-pointer with three seconds left in Monday’s upset win over North Stanly 45-44.

Culp led the Bulls (4-15) with 20 points and Clancy Russell had her highest point total of the season adding 18 points. Gentry Grubb paced the Comets (12-8) with 17 points and Jenni Speight added 12.

In the fourth, the Comets went to a full-court press, which helped put North back into the lead, getting several three pointers from Grubb.

South again rallied with several steals and free throws to pull within two points with under a minute to play.

North Stanly led by two with 18 seconds left when Culp got the ball on the left wing and put up a shot that went off the window and in for a 45-44 South lead with three seconds left. The Comets missed a long three at the buzzer that would have given North the decision.

“This was a big win for us. It was close throughout and we were a little lucky at the end, but our girls did a great job ,” South head coach Larry Honeycutt said.

The North Stanly boys scored their second-highest point total of the season Monday night at South Stanly, including 53 second-half points in an 83-63 road win at the Bulls.

Stephen Misenheimer had a huge night for the Comets (6-14) with 27 points including 6-of-10 from the field and 14-of-21 at the free-throw line. Elijah Greene added 19 for North, including 3-of-5 on three-pointers and Tyler Burris had 11 points and three steals for the Comets.

“Tonight all started with defense for us; we did a good job communicating on defense last night,” North head coach Chris Misenheimer said. On offense, Misenheimer said that he was proud of how the team played together, adding that North “made the extra pass to set up a teammate. The sharing of the ball contributed to the win.”

South head coach Mike Crump said that David Harris played his best game of the year for the Bulls, adding, “He got steals and rebounds and played his heart out; he does things that don’t always show up in the paper.”
