Going into Thanksgiving break, the Cedar Ridge boys basketball team suffered its first loss of the young season to Person in Roxboro.
The first game after Thanksgiving turned out much better.
The Red Wolves cruised past South Granville 71-52 on Tuesday night at Red Wolves Gymnasium. As usual, seniors Peyton Pappas and Jacob Thomas led CRHS in scoring. They each scored 17.
It was freshman Terrence Crawford who provided the surprise scoring punch. In just his fourth varsity game, Crawford registered 11 points.
Cedar Ridge jumped out to a 26-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and never looked back.
The Red Wolves will be right back in action tonight. They face Southern Alamance in Mebane. Before the week is over, CRHS will play three games in four days. They travel to Burlington to take on the Cummings Cavaliers on Friday night.
