It was good news, bad news for the St. Joseph Female Flyers.

Although the Female Flyers didn’t shoot well, they still came away with a 51-30 win over the Fairview Lady Eagles Saturday in their regular season finale.

“We played well, we just didn’t shoot well. We missed a lot of good shots. But we got to play our bench and that was important,” said St. Joseph coach Nick Miller.

“It was nice to get a win to end the season and go into the tournament on a positive note.”

St. Joseph (15-6) plays Green at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Meigs High School in the Division IV sectional tournament.

Hannah Miller scored 14 points and Amber Neal had 12 to lead a balanced St. Joseph offense as seven different players scored.

MacKenzie Humphrey scored 12 points and Kara Adkins 11 for Fairview (4-15).

Miller and Lynsey Booker scored five points and Bri Bridges four in the first quarter as St. Joseph took a 14-8 lead.

Miller had seven points and Neal scored five in the second quarter as the Female Flyers pulled away to a 30-13 halftime lead.

Neal scored five more points to help offset seven by Adkins as St. Joseph extended the lead to 44-24.
