Jalisa Davis paced the Mustangs with 24 points. North Moore improves to 2-0 while the Lady Vikings dropped to 1-2.
In the nightcap, the Union Pines boys pulled out a 57-44 win over North Moore.
The Mustangs pulled to within two points with 4:22 left in the game, but back-to-back driving layups by Dionte Williams and Malik Crawford propelled the Vikings on a 15-4 over the rest of the contest for 13-point win. Shakeem McRae and Crawford led the Vikes with 13 and 12 points, respectively. Union Pines is now 2-1 and the Mustangs are 1-1.
