Franklinton High School went 1-1 in the Northshore Summer Basketball League Monday at Pelican Park in Mandeville.

For this league, teams play a pair of 20-minute halves with a running clock until the 1-minute mark of each period and then they played under the standard timing rules.

If a player is fouled in the act of shooting, they get one free throw, which counts for whatever the shot was worth.

If they hit the bucket and get fouled, the free throw is the standard one point.

The Demons captured the first game with a 58-45 victory over Mandeville.

Franklinton featured a balanced scoring attack, led by Quincy Stewart, who finished with 12 points.

Azende O. Magee tallied nine.

Tray Anders and Darrius Dawson registered eight apiece.

K.J. Magee recorded six points.

Jordan Barnes and Azende T. Magee both logged four.

Jeremiah Burkhalter added three. Jadwyn Warren and Gerald Coleman both contributed two points in the victory.

Franklinton coach Randall Ginn said both teams played many of their backups in the second half for summer league experience.

The Demons lost the second contest 64-51 against Northshore.

Azende T. Magee paced the Demons, putting up 17 points.

Nick Burkhalter wasn’t far behind, registering 13.

Tray Anders posted eight points.

Azende O. Magee finished with five.
