Reidsville avenges last season’s state championship loss to Farmville Central
The Reidsville Rams goes wire to wire in a dominant 76-66 win over the Farmville Central Jaguars in a rematch of last season’s NCHSAA 2A state championship game.
The Rams opened up the game on an absolute tear, opening with a 16-1 lead out of the gate and taking a 20 point lead to the halftime break. Farmville got back on track in the second half, cutting into the Reidsville lead but just couldn’t come back from the halftime deficit.
The Rams were led by stellar performances from big man Kendre Harrison and guard Johnniyus Sharpe. Harrison put up 21 points and 10 rebounds while finishing a perfect 9/9 shooting from the floor. Sharpe finished with a game high 24 points.
Farmville struggled shooting in all aspects of the game shooting only 34% from the field. MJ Williams and Chris Rhodes led the Jaguars in scoring with 19 a piece.
Farmville Central will face Raleigh Broughton at Holliday Gymnasium on Friday in a consolation game while Reidsville will meet Concord Cannon in a semifinal matchup of the Devonte Graham Bracket.
