Tuesday, February 19, 2013 — The second season began Monday as the Rocky River Conference tournament geared up at Monroe High School. Eight teams were vying for the championship along with hopes of possible selection to the third Season known as the sectionals. Two Stanly schools both sought to advance to the second round of that tournament.

Piedmont 60

North Stanly 46


The first session of the tournament saw two teams very familiar with each other face off for the right to advance to play the winner of the Monroe-Union Academy game. During the regular season, the Panthers and the Comets split the two-game series. Piedmont’s season did not get off to a good start but the Panthers certainly finished the regular season strong.

NS    15    18    6    7    46

Facing each other for the second time in six days, Cuthbertson cruised to a double-digit win and spoiled West’s senior night nearly a week ago. The Colts sought to achieve a different outcome.
