CHESHIRE — Who said a lamb is meek?

Fairland led by as many as 26 points in the third quarter.

Brian Morrow had 18 points for River Valley. Leading scorere Jason Jones was held to 8.

“Cole (Hatfield) did a great job on Jones. To limit him to 8 points is huge, and Jacob and Michael had great games for us on offense,” Fairland coach Chad Belville said.
