Falcons Explode in 2nd Half

Updated on February 9, 2015

Third Quarter Gets Job Done

The Falcons struggled to put points on the board in the first half, and found themselves with a five point deficit at halftime. Decision making was the difference in the first half on both ends of the court. The Falcons pushed the ball up the court, but forced the issue even when the scoring opportunity wasn't available. Surry Central made a considerate effort to get back on defense to keep the Falcons off the break.

On the defensive end, the Falcons bailed out the cold-shooting eagles with needless fouls. The Falcons trailed at the end of the first quarter by a score of 16-13, and at the half by a score of 27-22. Steven Gentry and Carson Fulp led the offensive effort in the first half with 9 points combined.

The second half saw a more focused Falcon team. The decision making was much improved, and it led to shots falling. Inside the paint, Carson Matthews asserted his dominance on the block. This opened up Carson Fulp from behind the 3-point arc, and he accommodated with three 3s on the night.

The Eagles had to come out of their collapsed defense, and that opened up driving lanes for Steven Gentry and Hunter Chapman. That pretty much sealed the deal for the Falcons as the guys put up 29 points in the 3rd quarter alone; outscoring the Eagles 29-10.

The Fourth quarter was even (23-22), but the damage was done. The Falcons kept Surry Central at arms length and earned the fourth spot in the conference standings. Hunter Chapman led the Falcons with 28 points. Carson Matthews added 15, Carson Fulp 13 and Steven Gentry 11.

The Falcons should host the Eagles again next week in the conference tournament opener. Even if the Falcons fall to North Surry and the Eagles upset West Stokes, the Falcons will have the heads up advantage over Surry Central.

Jacob Widner looks to feed the ball into Carson Matthews on the block.
