Isle of Wight Academy battled against a tough Atlantic Shores team before falling 83-61 in Chesapeake on Monday.

The Seahawks got double-figure scoring from four players — Javon Gibbs, Brian Kelley, Jordan Cannady and Brehon Britt — in running their record to 8-3-0 and a perfect 5-0-0 in the Metro Athletic Conference.

The Chargers trailed by as many as 19 in the first half, but then used a 15-3 run leading up to halftime to cut the lead to six points, 42-36, with 20 seconds left.
