SCIOTOVILLE — Christmas is a time for family. Just ask the Millers.

Hannah Miller scored 16 points and sister Molly scored the winning basket to give the St. Joseph Female Flyers and their father head coach Nick Miller a 38-36 win over the Sciotoville East Lady Tartans on Thursday.

The Female Flyers struggled with their shooting, but coach Miller said his team compensated with its defense.

“We did play good defense. We’ve played pretty good defense all season,” said coach Miller.

“Offensively, we just didn’t shoot the ball well. I don’t know if it was because of the layoff, but everybody is in the same situation at this time of year.”

Amber Neal also scored 10 points for the Female Flyers (8-1) including a pair of 3-pointers.

Tiffany Craft scored 14 points and Mercedes Tackett had 10 points in her first game for the Lady Tartans (2-6).

The game was tied 8-8 at the end of the first quarter. Neal scored 6 points in the second quarter but the Female Flyers trailed 19-18 at the half.

Tackett had 6 points in the third quarter as East went ahead 31-27.

But the defense held East to just 5 points in the fourth quarter and Molly Miller scored 6 points including the winning basket.

St. Joseph hosts Western Pike next Thursday.
