PEDRO – A big start wasn’t enough. The Rock Hill Redwomen needed some big shots at the end.

The Redwomen got those big shots from Mandy McDonie and Miranda Edwards as they edged the Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers 52-46 Monday.

Rock Hill (4-1) raced to a 21-12 first quarter lead behind 8 points by McDonie only to have Ironton rally to tie the game after three quarters 40-40.

Ironton was up 46-43, but Jordan Edwards hit a 3-pointer to tie the game. McDonie was fouled and made two free throws for a 48-46 lead. Ironton missed a shot and Miranda Edwards was fouled and sank two shots for a four-point lead.

Ashley Harris made a layup with five seconds left to set the final score.

"Miranda and Mandy’s free throws were huge. They both came though for us. And Jordan Edwards hit a huge three for us the fourth quarter," Redwomen coach Amy Hughes said.

The Redwomen were just 13-of-40 from the field but 19-of-24 at the line.

Jordan Edwards had 22 points to lead Rock Hill. McDonie scored 12 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.

Ironton fell to 1-2.
