Eagles sweep Creek on Senior Night  


The stars of the night shined on Senior Night at Beaufort High on Friday, as Quinn Wilson scored 18 points to lead the Eagles girls to a 38-33 win over rival Battery Creek and fellow senior Michael Dennison led the way with 23 points and 21 rebounds in the boys’ 66-56 win to finish the sweep. 

The Eagles led the girls game by as many as 11 in the first half before Kiara Wilson drilled a 3-pointer to pull Creek within 20-12 at halftime. The Dolphins reeled off a 10-2 run to start the third quarter to pull even and surged ahead 30-26 before Quinn Wilson stopped the avalanche with a triple then put the Eagles back on top with a steal and layup, and Beaufort was able to hang on. 

Quinn Wilson finished with 18 points and four steals, and Acionna Lowe pulled down 14 points and scored a key bucket for the Eagles. Kiara Wilson had 19 points, six rebounds, and four steals to lead the Dolpins, and Armani Hutchinson added five points and 14 boards.

Battery Creek’s Daquan Jacobs started the boys game with the hot hand and finished with 27 points, but the Dolphins faded after bolting to a nine-point lead in the first quarter. Dennison went to work inside, and Arthur Singleton was red-hot from 3-point range, knocking down four triples. 

Samurai Bonds added 12 points and six rebounds, and Sully Gay had 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists, and four steals and capped the big home win with an exclamation mark dunk. 

Battery Creek was in action at home Tuesday against Hanahan. Beaufort travels to North Charleston on Thursday.
