SOUTH POINT — The South Point Lady Pointers seemed to have all the answers.

Whenever St. Joseph got close, the Lady Pointers would answer with a clutch basket as they beat the Female Flyers 60-53 Thursday.

“We did a good job defensively most of the game. They hit a lot of 3s, but we were able to hit the shots when we needed,” said Lady Pointers’ coach Dave Adams.

Brett Justice scored 18 points — 13 in the first half — to lead the Lady Pointers (9-1). Brooklyn Badgett scored 12 points and Haley Rawlins added 9 in the win.

Amber Neal hit six 3-pointers and scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Female Flyers (9-2). Hannah Miller had 15 points and Bri Bridges added 10 points.

“We just couldn’t score near the basket. We just missed a lot of shots around the rim and South Point was able to finish,” said St. Joseph coach Nick Miller.

“But South Point is a pretty solid team. The Justice girl moves pretty well.”

Justice scored 8 points with Abbey Winkler, Justice and Rawlins all hitting 3-pointers to help South Point take a 14-10 first quarter lead.

Haley Bartram and Neal had triples for the Female Flyers in the quarter.

Justice and Brianna Bacon combined for 9 points in the second quarter as the Lady Pointers extended the lead to 27-21 at the half. Bridges and Neal accounted for 7 of St. Joseph’s 11 points.

Aundrea Bradburn and Badgett had 6 points each in the third quarter and South Point lead 44-38. Neal hit three 3-pointers and Miller added a pair of trifectas as each team scored 17 points in the quarter.

Miller — who had 15 of her points in the second half — scored 7 points in the fourth quarter, but Badgett scored 6 including a pair of clutch free throws to help seal the win.
