Despite a key injury to Chandler Wood who is out 4 weeks with a broken finger, North Paulding's 3rd ranked 7th grade boys rolled through Kennesaw Mountain and Allatoona to improve their winning streak to 8 games.
The Wolfpack beat rival Kennesaw Mountain on Saturday morning behind the big time scoring of Luke Dabbelt 57-54. The Wolfpack, under-sized due to Wood's injury, received critical minutes from Jordan Veneziale and CJ Swann in the post. Logan Jackson came off the bench to hit a key three pointer and the Wolfpack never trailed in the game.
On Sunday a slow and sluggish start was made up for with a strong 4th quarter as another region foe went down in defeat, as the Pack rolled Allatoona 42-32 on the road.
