Trinity-Fayetteville 61,

Wayne Country Day 46

* CHARLOTTE -- Trinity Christian of Fayetteville raced to an 11-point lead after one quarter and held on to defeat Wayne Country Day, 61-46, in quarterfinal-round action of the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association Class 1-A playoffs.

Lee Atkinson led the Chargers with 10 points.

"I was extremely proud of our guys and their effort," WCDS head coach Terry Jones said. "We'd discussed the things necessary to win, and one of those things was to be able to keep Trinity, a fast and deep team, within a 50-60-point scoring total. We were able to do that in the end, but I never would have bet we would have had the shooting struggles we did for the entirety of the game.

"We did everything right, got all the shots we wanted ... just wasn't our day."

Seniors Wyatt Bland, Cody Neal and Deshar Thomas played their final game for WCDS, which concluded the season 17-9 overall.
