PEDRO — The Gallipolis Blue Devils got off to a fast start and by the time the Rock Hill Redmen got going, there wasn’t enough time.

Gallipolis used its fast start to fuel a 56-40 win over the Redmen on Friday in the season opener for both teams.

“We just couldn’t hit anything and they got hot on us in the second quarter and we couldn’t overcome that,” said Redmen coach Dave Hopper.

Gallipolis went on a 10-2 run to start the game and pulled ahead 15-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The Blue Devils continued to pull away in the second quarter as they outscored the Redmen 18-10. Seth Atkins hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Gallipolis a 33-17 halftime lead.

Rock Hill outscored Gallipolis 12-10 in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 43-29.

But the Blue Devils held serve as they outscored the Redmen 13-11 in the fourth quarter.

Austin Collins had a solid game as he led the Redmen with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Layden Delawder added 9 points.

Reid Eastman had 12 points and Cody Hall and Jimmy Clagg 9 each for Gallipolis. Justin Bailey and Clagg grabbed 5 rebounds each.
