Carrboro’s Grace Nanney scored 17 points while Deja Tucker added 16 as the Jaguars defeated the Red Wolves 44-33 in each team’s season opener on Tuesday night.

Davis had 19, but she was the only Red Wolf in double figures. Kaylee Herbst had six for Cedar Ridge, who shot only 29% from the field.

Davis shot 6-of-11 from the field and knocked down both of Cedar Ridge’s 3-pointers.

Cedar Ridge carried a 20-14 lead into halftime after Davis canned a three-pointer off a feed from Sydney Harrison. Carrboro was held to five points in the second quarter. Nanney was 0-9 from the field in the first half, but she found her range when it mattered.

Carrboro started the second half on a 16-3 run, where Nanney scored the first six points of the half for the Jaguars, while Tucker scored the following seven. Cedar Ridge missed all five of its 3-pointers in the third quarter and trailed 31-27 going into the fourth quarter.

Davis hit a 3-pointer in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, but it was the only field goal of the fourth quarter for CRHS.
