COAL GROVE — Forget the flu shot. The St. Joseph Female Flyers saw the shot doctor.

St. Joseph (5-1) had three players in double figures and nine in the scoring column as they routed the Lincoln County Lady Panthers 59-34 Saturday in the Coal Grove Giovanni’s Pizza River Battle.

“We played really well. We shot the ball well, played good defense and had a lot girls in the scoring column,” said St. Joseph coach Nick Miller. “It was a nice win. To hold a triple-A team to single digit scoring in three quarters is a tribute to our girls.”

Hannah Miller scored 15 points, Lynsey Booker had 14 points and Amber Neal added 11 points for the Female Flyers (5-1).

Neal sent home two 3-pointers in the first quarter as St. Joseph took a 15-7 lead.

Booker scored 10 points in the second and Neal added 5 more as the lead grew to 36-12 at the half.

Miller had 5 points in the third quarter and the lead ballooned to 49-17.

The Female Flyers began emptying their bench in the third quarter and the reserves played the entire fourth quarter.
