KINGDOM CITY — Senior guard Gabe Cash delivered a career-high 34 points in eclipsing 1,000 points in his time with the Thunderbirds in Tuesday night's Eastern Missouri Conference victory over the Wildcats.

Cash was 12-of-17 from the field — including 5-of-9 from 3-point range — and also recorded five assists and four steals as North Callaway (11-9, 4-3 EMO) won its fifth in a row. Senior forward Tanner Taylor contributed seven points and seven rebounds.

The Thunderbirds fell behind 15-6 after one quarter Tuesday night, but outscored Wright City 17-8 in the second quarter to pull even at 23-all at halftime. North Callaway then doubled its output by outscoring the Wildcats 23-11 in the third quarter to open up a 46-34 lead.

The Thunderbirds resisted Wright City despite being outscored 17-9 in the fourth quarter.

"This was a really good win against a quality opponent," North Callaway head coach Matt Miller said. "We kind of came out sluggish in the first quarter, but Gabe had a great game.

"We want to carry this (streak) over to our next game."

Dillon Seabaugh topped Wright City (10-10, 4-3) with 15 points and J.J. McRoberts was next with 11.

The Thunderbirds (8-5) dropped the junior varsity game 59-53. Freshman guard Matthew Weber hit four 3-pointers in tallying 20 points and sophomore guard Webb Langworthy had three 3s in supplying 17 points.

North Callaway remains at home for an EMO contest against Silex at 6 p.m. Friday.
