PEDRO — When the shots wouldn’t go down, so did the chances of the Rock Hill Redwomen.

The Redwomen couldn’t get a shot to fall over the final minute of the game and the River Valley Lady Raiders pulled away to a 43-38 Ohio Valley Conference win Monday.

Rock Hill missed a shot with a minute to play and was forced to foul. Chelsey Copley hit two free throws to make it 41-38.

The Redowmen missed a 3-point attempt and again had to foul Copley who hit two more shots to set the final score.

“We had our chance, we just couldn’t get anything to go down. I can’ complain about the effort. Our girls gave a great effort,” said Rock Hill coach Greg Damron.

“Our shots were there, they just wouldn’t fall. Give them credit. They had a complete team scoring effort.”

Kasey Russell scored 23 points, seven rebounds and five steals to lead the Redomwen (3-9, 1-4). Brooklyn Massie had five rebounds and Anna Darby four. Sarah Travis had two steals.

Tianna Qualls scored 13 for River Valley (5-7, 2-3).

Russell scored seven points in the first quarter as Rock Hill took a 13-9 lead.

River Valley came back to take a 23-20 halftime lead and Qualls scored nine points in the third quarter to give the Lady Raiders a 35-31 lead.

Rock Hill plays at South Point Thursday in a league game.
