Playing its third game in three nights, Cape Fear Christian Academy’s varsity boys basketball team faced a 14-point deficit in the first half at Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem on Wednesday night.

“Our guys were dead tired,” said Eagles coach Steve Mims, Jr.

The visitors managed a comeback as junior post player Jabare Perry provided 27 points in a 52-45 win. Cinque Lemon added 13 points as the Eagles improved to 3-0.

It was the first game for the Pharaohs under coach Andre Gould, who guided Winston-Salem Prep to six NCHSAA 1-A championships.

“It was a real away game,” Mims said. “They had all the spectators and they were loud.”

Other than players and coaches, the Eagles were limited to essential personnel under COVID-19 restrictions.

Sila Tako had seven points and four steals for CFCA, which hosts Crossroads Christian in the Senior Classic on Friday at 8 p.m. Zeke Brock had a pair of steals and finished two run-outs in the fourth quarter for four points. Caden Bell had one point.
