CLAYTON -- Helen Moore tallied a game-high 13 points as North Johnston opened its season Monday evening with a 43-29 victory against county rival West Johnston.
"We didn't play very well offensively or defensively," veteran Panthers coach David Bagwell said. "Our fullcourt press got us some turnovers and we got in transition to score some easy baskets early. But we did not play well in our halfcourt game."
Moore added seven rebounds, while Stephanie Jones contributed six points and six steals.
"She (Jones) did a good job on the defensive end, not just with the steals, but she was in the right place all the time," Bagwell said.
North Johnston entertains South Lenoir next Monday.

collects third victory
SNOW HILL -- Brianna Stanton pumped in a game-high 14 points and Teketia May chipped in 13 as unbeaten Greene Central knocked off Charles B. Aycock 46-35 on Monday evening.
The Rams improved to 3-0, while the Golden Falcons slipped to 0-3.
Aycock coach Gary Hales said his team got good looks at the basket all evening, but just couldn't finish. The Golden Falcons shot 11 for 49 from the floor and didn't fare much better with a 12 for 32 effort at the free throw line.
"I think our nerves get the better of us on the court and we have a hard time playing through the missed shots," Hales said. "They're learning a new system this year and it's taking time to get adjusted to it. If we can hit some shots, our confidence will go up.
"We're struggling to put the ball in the basket."
Keyatta Pettiford emerged Aycock's top scorer with 12 points. Lela Reid contributed 11. Erin Medford snagged a team-leading six rebounds to go with three points.
The Golden Falcons open their Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference schedule at county rival Goldsboro next Tuesday. Tip-off is scheduled for approximately 6 p.m.
