But GW, which doubled up HCHS 16-8 in the first period, got scoring contributions from 11 players and raced away from the Comets. GW owned a 40-24 lead at the half, after getting strong first half contributions from Isaiah Bethel and Khajuan Watkins.

Bethel had 16 points, including nine in the first half. Watkins scored 14, including ten in the first half.
