Perry Hall engulfed visiting Carver A&T with defensive pressure throughout the first half of their non-conference Baltimore County boys basketball meeting, Monday, in Perry Hall rolling out to a 41-8 halftime lead and coasting to an 86-32 victory.

The Gators forced 28 turnovers in the contest, creating a steady stream of offensive opportunities, as they slowly gain confidence in the defensive system of new head coach Daryl Wade.

Guard Jamal Craig set the pace in the opening quarter when he scored 10 of his team-high 17-points and 13 different Gators would eventually score in the contest.  Also in double-figures was Jenkins Obiefule with 11 points, while Antoine Snyder and Mike DeBaugh combined for 16 points.

After dropping its opener, 72-50, to Edmondson, Perry Hall rebounded for a 69-65 road win at Dulaney last Friday.  Next, the Gators will visit arch-rival Parkville on Wednesday night.  Carver (0-2) will seek its first win on Wednesday when it hosts Sparrows Point.
