Sometimes in athletics, one team is clearly better than the other team and that was certainly the case today between Hopewell and Avonworth.

Only an act of good sportsmanship by head coach Doug Biega allowed the final score to be as close as it ended up being.

Hopewell improved their record to 9-1 with a 32-point win as the Hopewell staff sat his starters the entire second half and gave their reserve players their most playing time of the season.

1st Quarter Recap: 

*First possession, James Armstrong with a nice bounce pass to Brody Rock for a layup. Hopewell 2-0

*Next possession, Rock showed he can score from the outside as well as he drained a deep 3-pointer. Hopewell 5-0
