Northern Guilford's girls basketball team got enough separation in the second half to earn a 68-57 win against Eastern Alamance in the third round of the NCHSAA Class 3-A playoffs on March 1.

The fourth meeting of Mid-State 3-A foes produced a similar result as the three prior meetings, as the Lady Nighthawks (29-1) downed the Eagles.

Leading by five at halftime, Northern opened an 18-point edge at the end of the period.

Aliyah Grinage paced the Nighthawks with 18 points. Sydney Wilson tossed in 15 points in the winning effort while Amanda Coffer and Nya Moore added 14 and 12 points, respectively.

Northern will take on Chapel Hill on March 7 at Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville. The winner will meet either Eastern Wayne or West Craven.
