VIDEO: Concord explodes in 3rd quarter to defeat St. E
William Chapman scored 10 3rd quarter points as Concord broke open a tight game at halftime into a 64-46 victory over St. Elizabeth Friday night.
Concord was down one in the final seconds of the first half when a bounce pass led to a 2-hand jam by Daquan Smallwood which put the Raiders up 26-25 at the break.
That basket sparked what ultimately was a 12-0 run bridging the half, as Chapman, who was scoreless in the first half, buried 3 field goals during the game-changing stretch.
Concord ended up winning the 3rd quarter 21-7 as their deficit became a 47-32 lead going into the final eight minutes.
Tenacious pressure kept most of the Vikings at bay, despite freshman Jordan Money nailing three 3's in the final quarter, and Concord (2-0) picked up their second win in two days.
Joe Cooper backed up Thursday's 29 points against Howard with 25 points, while fellow guard Chapman scored 13, and Smallwood finished with 10.
Money ended with seven 3-pointers and 26 points, while Mike Piekarski managed 8 points while fighting foul trouble for St. Elizabeth who dropped to 1-3 on the season.
Concord travels to Middletown Tuesday, while St. Elizabeth will take 3 weeks off before the Quaker Classic at Wilmington Friends to start the 2014 part of their schedule.
