Dunn took a middle school basketball sweep over visiting Harnett Central on Thursday.
At Harnett Central on Dec. 17, a rally by Dunn’s girls came up short as the Raiders held on for a one-point win. On Thursday, it was the Greenwaves that held off a late rally to take a 28-26 win.
JaNiah Smith led the Greenwaves (2-7) with 15 points, Kele Bell had six points, Stephanie Davis, Virginia Pope and Reagan Adams had two points apiece and Jamia Covington had one point.
Tanira Edwards had 10 points to lead the Raiders, Victoria Langdon had eight points, Avery Fortune had six points and Jana Booker had two points.
Dunn led 23-18 going into the fourth quarter when Central rallied with a 6-0 run to take the lead. But Smith scored to put Dunn back in front.
With Dunn still holding a 25-24 lead in the closing seconds, Covington was fouled and made just the first of two free throws. But Adams rebounded and scored, meaning Langdon’s ensuing score for Central was not enough to tie the game and the Greenwaves were able to run out the last few seconds for the win.
Dunn routed Central 58-37 in the boys game to take a season sweep over the Raiders.
The Greenwaves (8-1) were led by Jaeshaun Murchison, with 25 points.
Barrington Kerr had seven points. Anthony Jones had six points. Quenton Mangum had four points. Xander Johnson, Chandler Miles, Ro’mello Pegues and Ross Stevens had three points apiece. Zack Winters had two points. Carter Daughtry and Matthew Strickland had one point apiece.
The Raiders were paced by Nicholas Avery, with eight points, and Jonathon Patterson, with seven points.
Camauri McDonald and De’Marquez Rochelle had five points apiece. Luke Frailey and Camryn Jones had four points apiece. Bryson Monroe and Jahlil Cates-Surles had two points apiece.
Central’s only lead of the game came early, at 6-5. Dunn finished the quarter on an 11-2 run and held the lead the rest of the way.
Harnett Central is at home against Highland and Dunn is at home against rival Coats-Erwin for a Pink-Out game Monday. The boys game between the Greenwaves and Falcons will be for sole possession of first place in the Harnett County Conference.
