Wins by Chapel Hill over Hillside have been rare but the Tigers earned one with a 57-40 victory on Wednesday in the opening round of the girls’ bracket of the High School OT Invitational at Cary Academy. Raziyah Farrington led a balanced Chapel Hill attack with 12 points, while Tamia Eatmon scored 11 and Jamella Smith finished with 10. The Tigers, who last played Hillside four years ago when they each were in the PAC-6, did not allow Hillside’s patented pressure defense to take over the game. Instead, it was Chapel Hill that turned up the pressure on the Hornets. Chapel Hill coach Sherry Norris remarked that the last time she faced Hillside it was a runaway in the Hornets’ favor.
