SCIOTOVILLE — The Rock Hill Redwomen got board. Real board.

East used some strong rebounding to beat the Redwomen 60-53 on Saturday.

“Our younger players came to play. They did a nice job for us coming in. But the bottom line is we got out-rebounds. We got beat on the glass. We didn’t box out,” said Rock Hill coach Greg Damron.

Sami Dillon scored 12 points and Kaci Russell had 11 points and 5 rebounds for Rock Hill (3-7). Brooklyn Massie grabbed 7 rebounds and Katie Johnson pulled down 5.

Tiffany Craft scored 21 points to lead East. Jessie Monroe and Mercedes Tackett scored 16 each for the Lady Tartans.

East led 14-12 after the first quarter and pulled away to a 30-23 lead at the half as Craft scored 10 points in the quarter.

Russell scored 6 points in the second quarter to keep the Redwomen close.

The Lady Titans extended the lead to 47-36 after three quarters as Craft scored 8 points.

But Rock Hill held Craft scoreless in the fourth quarter while Dillon had 10 points to rally the Redwomen.

“We didn’t turn the ball over very much, but we weren’t very consistent,” said Damron.

Rock Hill plays at Chesapeake on Monday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
