Trailing by two entering the fourth, Hickory powered its way to 24 points in the final quarter, lifting the Lady Red Tornadoes past Newton-Conover, 59-48.

It was about as even as it could get in the early going. Newton-Conover (2-1) and Hickory (4-0) both scored nine points in the first quarter and 16 points in the second quarter, leaving the game tied 25-25 at halftime.

A two-point cushion entering the fourth quarter gave the Lady Red Devils hope they could come away with the victory, but that all changed in the fourth.

Danasia Witherspoon scored eight of her 19 points in the final quarter, including six from the free throw line.

N-C struggled to make their free chances. After making 14-of-17 free throw attempts through three quarters, the Lady Red Devils were mired with a 4-of-8 free throw shooting performance in the fourth quarter.

Shynese Whitener led N-C with 18 points in the game, including 9-for-9 from the free throw line. Taylor Petty added nine points.
