Chestatee opened the season with a big 70-47 win over arch-rival North Hall at the Lynn Cottrell Center on Tuesday.
Riley Black and Payton Cable combined for 22 first-half points to help the Lady War Eagles to a 34-16 halftime lead. Chestatee's stifling defense held the Lady Trojans to just six points in the opening period.
Although North Hall (0-1) played the Lady War Eagles (1-0) much closer, 26-24, in the second half, the Chestatee's first-half performance was too much to overcome.
Black, a sophomore, led Chestatee with 16 points, and Cable, a freshman, poured in 14 points. Freshman Caroline Bull hit for 12 points, and freshman Addison Boyd had 12 points.
Seniors Riley Allison and Bowen Corley led the defensive effort with 3 steals apiece.
Athena Vachtsevanos led the Lady Trojans with 11 points.
Chestatee will play on Thursday at Johnson. North Hall is off until Nov. 30 when they play host to Union County.
