BAINBRIDGE — The turtle turned into a hare.

After a slow turtle-like start, the St. Joseph Female Flyers took off in the second half and beat the Huntington Ross Lady Huntsmen 43-33 Saturday in the Paint Valley Shootout.

The Female Flyers fell behind by 5 points at the half before holding Ross scoreless in the third quarter and taking control of the game.

“We started slow. We had two starters who have never played varsity basketball,” said St. Joseph coach Nick Miller. “(Ross) was quick and we struggled early and got in some foul trouble. We made some adjustments at halftime and it worked out for us.”

Hannah Miller led St. Joseph (1-0) with a game-high 17 points. Molly Miller scored 8 points and Amber Neal and Lyndsey Booker added 7 each.

The Female Flyers were down 9-6 after the first quarter. Neal and Hannah Miller got 5 points each in the second quarter and trailed 22-17 at the break.

But St. Joseph got 5 points each from Booker and Hannah Miller in the third quarter as they outscore Ross 11-0 to go up 28-22.

Molly Miller scored 8 points and Hannah Miller was 5-of-6 from the foul line in the fourth quarter as the lead grew by as many as 15 points.

St. Joseph hosts Green at 6 p.m. Wednesday in a varsity-only game.
