WAXHAW, N.C. — The Weddington Warriors used big efforts from AJ Fulp and Jordan Barber Friday, defeating archrival Marvin Ridge 68-58 behind the duo’s 43 combined points.

Coming into the game on a ten-game winning streak, Weddington knew the Mavericks wouldn’t be the most welcoming hosts. Despite Marvin Ridge’s best efforts, the Warriors dominated the first quarter, putting Marvin Ridge down 21-12 after the first quarter.

In the second, Weddington outscored the Mavericks again, but Marvin Ridge gave themselves a shot going into the locker room. Weddington’s 40-26 lead would be the largest lead of the game, and eventually, too much for the Mavericks to overcome.

In the second half, Marvin Ridge outscored Weddington, but were unable to erase the large deficit they created in the first half. The Warriors did exactly what they needed down the stretch, giving Weddington it’s eleventh-straight win, and thirteenth overall in fifteen games.
