PROCTORVILLE – Now let’s see, whose turn is it tonight?

On this night, it was Jeana Diamond, Brooke Godby, Brooke Fisher, and Holly Harris who stepped up their play and led the Fairland Lady Dragons to a 55-45 win over the Gallipolis Blue Angels Monday.

With Ashley Harris in foul trouble most of the game, Diamond scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help keep Fairland unbeaten at 3-0.

Godby had 12 points, Fisher handed out 10 assists and came up with four steals, and Holly Harris scored 11 points and blocked three shots.

"Every night it seems like someone else is stepping up," Fairland coach Nathan Speed said. "Tonight it was Jeana. And Brooke Godby had a big game. She played well defensively and she hit some big shots. Holly Harris had good game. She did little things that go unnoticed. She gave us some good help defense. And Brooke Fisher played well all around."

Fairland jumped ahead 12-4 the first quarter and then Godby scored six points the second quarter to help open up a 25-8 halftime cushion.

Gallipolis, 2-1, got hot and scored 23 points the third quarter to draw within 41-31, but Diamond had six points in the quarter to prevent any further damage.

"We played well. Any time you can beat a quality program like Gallipolis it’s a good win," Speed said. "We still have to play better against conference teams and we have to eliminate turnovers, especially down the stretch.

"It was a good defensive effort again. We were a little disappointed in our third quarter, but they were shooting the ball pretty well."

Fairland plays at Ironton Thursday.

Rock Hill 63, Rose Hill 50

ASHLAND, Ky. – Telling Bobbie Clark to grit her teeth and get tough might not work. She’ll get tough, she just might not grit her teeth.

Clark, who had three teeth knocked loose in last week’s game against Portsmouth, came back to scored 20 points and grab 12 rebounds to help lead the Rock Hill Redwomen to a 63-50 win over the Rose Hill Christian Lady Royals Monday.

"Bobbie showed some toughness. To have three teeth knocked loose and come back and play like that showed some toughness," Rock Hill coach Amy Hughes said.

Mandy McDonie had a big game for the Redwomen with a game-high 24 points to go along with four steals. Miranda Edwards had a solid game with six points, two steals, two assists, and eight rebounds.

Ashley Harris came off the bench to grab six rebounds. Jordan Edwards had seven points, eight rebounds, and three steals.

"Miranda played pretty well. And Ashley Harris gave us some good minutes. She played hard,’ said Hughes.

Rock Hill led 14-13 after the first quarter and 25-20 at the break. The Redwomen stretched the margin to 49-38 after three quarters.

Rock Hill was 25-57 from the field for 44 percent.

"Our shooting is getting better, and our team play is getting better. That is a key for us to be successful. But our rebounding and defense need a lot of work," said Hughes.

Rock Hill plays Thursday at Greenup County, Ky.

In the reserve game, Rock Hill rolled to a 49-15 win.

Monica Bamer had 14 points and five rebounds, Julie Mootz got 12 points and five steals.
