On the road for the eighth time this season, Thunder Nation headed to Hudson, NC. The Carolina Thunder had one goal in mind, and that was to win, which they earned 137-129.

Hickory Hoyas standout Justin Glover (6'3''-G) torched the Thunder for 55 points. It wasn't enough though. The Thunder got the victory after some timely scoring from Jaylen Shaw (6'1''-G) and the hot shooting of Deshawn Bethea and Andrew Crawford (6'4''-G, college: Benedict). Mr. Shaw, playing his first game this season, got thrown into the fire from opening tip-off. Having a major player didn't affect the chemistry of the team. Everybody knows what Jay-Boy (Jaylen Shaw's nickname) brings to the table. He made everyone's job easier.

Andrew Crawford was an early target for some of the Shaw's dimes as he connected on 6-14 behind the arc. Super sub Bethea continued the onslaught, once he entered the game. Behind the arc, he went 6-of-11. Overall, Bethea was 9-15 to the tune of 25 points.

This game changed, once the bench mob entered. They scored 42 points in the second quarter alone.

The action continued in the third with Glover working his magic again. Midway through the quarter, Coach Page went back with the bench mob. The unit of Bobby Crawford (6'3''-G, college: Rice), Bethea, Anthony Keane (6'3''-G, college: Hartwick), Trey James (6'6''-F), and Brandon Page controlled the game, putting clamps on Glover.

The Thunder was in control again to start the fourth, up by twenty. In the ECBL, a twenty-point lead isn't safe. Page knows this so during the game he went back with his starters, and it proved to be a mistake as Glover and the Hoyas went on a run. scoring ten quick points. At this point, tension began building on the Thunder's bench. Knowing how they have had trouble closing out games with this being their first year in league play, Page called a timeout. That's why having a backcourt of Jarvis Williams (5'11''-PG) and Jay-Boy worked favorably. J. Will (Jarvis Williams' nickname) shot 8-8 on the charity stripe, with four of them in the closing of game play. The Hoyas did cut the lead to five, but Jay-Boy obliterated the hope of the Hoyas with a tough layup down the stretch.

There were many key performances. Trey James and Devontae Washington. James added to being one of the league leaders in rebounding with sixteen rebounds. The league leader in blocked shots, which is Washington, continued to host a block party with four private celebrations. Keane had nine points, six assists, and four steals. Bethea added 25 points, two steals, and five assists. J. Will contributed 12 points and five assists.

Carolina Thunder (4-4) is off until May 19 for the all Pee Dee Showdown against Florence Wildcats (2-3) in Hartsville, SC, the Thunder will be playing near their home. Florence is the host team, but after travelling two hours or more every weekend, the Thunder will enjoy this game.
