After the Kestrel Heights vs Raleigh Charter game, Phenom Hoops headed to the next gym to watch the second half of this intriguing matchup; a rematch from a game that we witnessed earlier in the year.
In the first half though, Voyager Academy got out to a solid lead and from the score, was very productive on offense as they held a 47-29 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, River Mill Academy made a run to start cutting the lead down to single digits and as many as four points late in the third. Malik Singletary hit some big three’s in the quarter but it looked like both teams were looking to push the ball when they could to speed up the game. After cutting it to four with three minutes, Voyager made a small run of their own to push it back to double digits shortly after.
River Mill would make another run in the fourth to cut it down to three and both teams would be going at it from there, giving their all and refusing to lose. Trading baskets back and forth, Voyager looked to ice it from the line late but the Jaguars still had their chance. In the end though, the comeback wasn’t enough as Voyager Academy moved on Wednesday night.
