By

GRUNDY -- The first half wasn’t exactly a wake-up call for Grundy, it was more like the Golden Wave hit the snooze button a couple of times.  The Golden Wave came to life on both ends of the floor after halftime  and picked up a 55-41, come-from-behind win over visiting Carroll County Wednesday night.  Jon Kelly (19 points), Cody Justus (14) and Derek Hess (13) all scored in double figures for Grundy, which missed 12 of 18 shots in the second quarter and fell behind 22-20 at halftime.  Kelly scored nine points in the third quarter and Cody Justus hit a  3-pointer that capped a 9-2 run and staked Grundy (10-7, 3-4) to its  first double-digit lead, 37-26, with 1:03 left in the period.  Grundy held the Cavaliers, who shot 47.6 percent (10-of-21) from the floor before halftime, to 25.9 percent shooting (7-of-27) in the second half.  The Cavs scored just four points and hit just 2-of-12 shots in the third period.  Hess, Kelly and Logan Boyd each had two steals after the break.  Adam Crotts was the lone double figure scorer for Carroll County with 15 points.  Grundy’s biggest lead was 52-37, after a basket by Justus with 2:28 remaining. The Cavaliers got no closer than nine points in the fourth quarter.    Carroll County......12  10   4  15––41 Grundy.................11   9   18  17––55

Goins came up with a steal and a three-point play seconds later and finished with nine fourth-quarter points. “Rachel and Lindsey [Martin] can both shoot the ball extremely well,” said Motley. “They didn’t score a lot for us tonight but they both made up for it on the defensive end.” Savannah Charles scored six of her team-high 13 points in the third quarter. Grundy (10-7, 4-3) led most of the first half. There were seven lead changes and three ties in the second half.  Goins also had 14 rebounds for Carroll County.   Carroll County......8   9  12  18––47 Grundy................12  7    9    9––37
