ISLE OF WIGHT—Isle of Wight Academy gained a quality win in Metro Athletic Conference play, topping Hampton Christian 70-61 on Friday.

Trailing 41-37 at the end of the third, it was also a key stretch for the Chargers. They scored the first 18 points of the fourth quarter to claim a 55-42 edge with 3:46 left.

Senior Gage Rogers had a season-high 14 points. Sophomore Bryce Casey led the way for IWA with 17 points and added 12 rebounds. Junior Adam Webb had 9 points and 9 rebounds.

Rebounding was a difference in this game, relative to the previous two. IWA out-rebounded Hampton 41-33, including 15-8 on the Chargers’ offensive end. Hampton Christian was led by B.J. Moses and Evan Dougood, each with 24 points.

No other Warriors were in double figures. IWA ran its record to 4-11 and 2-6 in Metro play.
