The North Augusta Yellow Jackets’ girls’ and boys’ basketball team kicked off their season opener Thursday night at home against Dutch Fork High School. The Yellow Jackets’ girls looked completely in control of the game from tip-off. They came out with a hay maker and lead after the first quarter 22-6. The Yellow Jackets continued their dominance into the second quarter and for the rest of the first half holding the Dutch Fork girls to just fourteen points in the entire first half. The Yellow Jackets’ defense was just completely stifling for the whole game and the Dutch Fork girls just didn’t have a response.

North Augusta forced thirty-seven turnovers on Dutch Fork and scored nearly every time off of each one. The Yellow Jackets’ girls rolled to the finish line winning their first game of the season and continuing their perfect record from last season coming off winning the state championship. The Yellow Jackets’ girls got great contributions from Amari Young, Sarah Crews, Aaliyah Bell, and Tyliah Burns. Shortly following the North Augusta girls win, the boys were set to tip off against the Dutch Fork boys. The Yellow Jacket boys came out fast with sophomore shooting guard Omarion Byrd hitting a three-pointer for the first basket of the game and giving North Augusta the lead. Dutch Fork was able to put together a run in the first half and go into halftime with a two-point lead 31-29.

The second half was a total different story. North Augusta came out firing on all cylinders, got the lead, and never looked back. North Augusta finished the game on a run and won by ten points 77-67. They got a huge lift from their star senior forward, Tez Collins. Both teams are set to face off again tomorrow, December 1st, against Lakeside. Tip-off time is set to be at 6 p.m for the girls.
