CHESAPEAKE — Any win is a good win.

Despite a sub-par performance, the Chesapeake Panthers managed to beat the Rock Hill Redmen 46-29 Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“We didn’t play very well. We were really sluggish the whole game. You have to be ready to play every night. We were fortunate we did enough to win,” said Chesapeake coach Ryan Davis.

Gage Rhoades scored 16 points and Caleb Heffner had 12 points to lead the Panthers (9-3, 3-1).

Austin Collins scored 14 for Rock Hill (1-9, 0-4).

Rhoades scored six points in the first quarter as Chesapeake opened up a 14-9 lead.

Neither team scored well in the second quarter as the Panthers upped their lead to 23-13 at the break.

Both offenses struggled in the third quarter as the Panthers outscored the Redmen 7-5 and it was 30-18.

Heffner scored six points early in the fourth quarter as the Panthers blew the game open and then emptied their bench.
