WESTWOOD, Ky. — Call an electrician. There’s something wrong with the “on-off” switch.

The St. Joseph Flyers were “on” at the start of Tuesday’s game, but someone flipped the “off” switch to begin the second quarter and the Fairview Eagles stormed back to post a 59-38 win.

“As well as we played in the first quarter, we played equally as bad in the second quarter,” said Flyers’ coach Jeremy Williams. “It was hard to explain. Nothing changed. I don’t know what happened. It was like a switch was turned.”

Justin Mahlmeister scored 8 points and Eli Lewis scored 6 points as the Flyers scored the first 10 points of the game and jumped out to a 14-4 lead.

But things began to turn sour in the second quarter as the Flyers were guilty of 10 turnovers.

Isaiah King had 11 points and Andrew Carroll scored 6 more as the Eagles erupted for 27 points and held the Flyers to 4 points and it was 31-18 at the half.

“Most of their points were off turnovers that they turned into layups,” said Williams.

Fairview (10-8) outscored the Flyers 17-5 in the third quarter as the lead ballooned to 48-23. Hunter Pemberton scored all 5 of St. Joseph’s points.

The St. Joseph backups finished the game and outscored Fairview 15-11. Trey Young scored 8 points and Kyle Williams 5 to lead the Flyers.

Mahlmeister, Lewis and Young scored 8 points each to lead the Flyers (6-10).

Eli Lewis and Chris Lewis had 5 rebounds each.

Kings scored 15 points and Carroll 10 points to pace Fairview.

St. Joseph travels to Wellston on Tuesday.

Also, the St. Joseph games against Rose Hill Christian have ben cancelled due to a scheduling problem with Rose Hill.

The Flyers have added a game at Greenup County on Feb. 15.
