PROCTORVILLE — The Fairland Lady Dragons didn’t just read the report, they studied it and acted on it.

Given instructions on how to beat the Greenup County Lady Musketeers, the Lady Dragons followed the words of their coaches to the letter as they rolled to an 84-54 season opening win on Monday.

“I’m happy we didn’t get beat by the things on the scouting report,” said Fairland coach Jon Buchanan. “We did a good job stopping their 3-point game. They have three good guards and we were a little concerned how we would match up against them.”

Fairland limited Greenup County to 6-of-27 from behind the arc.

The Lady Dragons also dominated the glass with an amazing 72 rebounds.

Terra Stapleton had 19 rebounds to go with her 30 points on 13-of-18 shooting.

Kayla Swiger scored 11 points, Chandler Fulks had 10 points and 4 assists, and Mackenzie Riley grabbed 11 rebounds.

Destiny Jones scored 15 and Micah Leslie 12 to lead Greenup County.

Fairland jumped out to a 28-11 first quarter lead as Stapleton scored half the total and Swiger added 6.

Fulks scored 6 points in the second quarter to lead a balanced scoring effort as Fairland cruised to a 51-25 halftime cushion.

Stapleton scored 8 more points in the third quarter and Fairland built an insurmountable 67-38 lead.

The Lady Dragons visits Meigs on Thursday.
