FRANKLIN FURNACE — Not perfect, but good enough as far as Rock Hill coach Dave Hopper is concerned.

The Rock Hill Redmen turned in a solid performance as they beat the Green Bobcats 57-48 Saturday.

“I was very please with how we played and how we played as a team,” said Hopper.

Chance Blankenship scored 16 points to lead three Redmen in double figures. Austin Collins scored 14 and Joey Stidham 11.

Green (0-5) was led by Trent Marcum with 18 while Brody Stormes and Hunter Lewis scored 11 each.

Stidham had 7 points in the first quarter as Rock Hill eased ahead 15-13 after the first quarter. Marcum had 6 points for the Bobcats.

The Redmen (1-4) pushed the lead to 27-21 at the break. Blankenship scored 7 points in the third quarter as Rock Hill extended the lead to 41-30. Marcum tried to keep the Bobcats close with 8 points.

Collins scored 8 points in the fourth quarter — all from the foul line — to secure Rock Hill’s first win.
