Redmen deal SG first loss

CHESHIRE — Andrew Stumbo finished what he started.

After scoring the first 8 points of the game, Stumbo scored the final two as the Rock Hill Redmen handed the South Gallia Rebels their first loss of the season Tuesday, 69-68 in double overtime.

“The key for us was our kids determination and character. They never gave up. Even when South Gallia tied it up, our kids said ‘We’re going to win.’ And they did,” Rock Hill coach Adam Simpson said.

Stumbo finished the game with a career-high 29 points and 16 rebounds as Rock Hill improved to 6-5. He also had 5 assists.

Aaron Butler had 13 points and Nathan Davenport 10 points and 9 rebounds before fouling out.

South Gallia, now 10-1, had four players in double figures as Dustin McComas and Aaron Phillips scored 13, Travis McCarty 12 and Tyler Duncan 11.

Stumbo not only scored the first 8 points of the game he had 12 in the quarter as Rock Hill took an 18-14 lead.

Derek Beaver scored all 6 of his points while McCarty and Duncan hit 3-pointers as South Gallia cut the deficit to 32-30 at the break.

Butler had 7 points and Mark DePriest 5 to keep the Redmen in front.

The scoring slowed in the third quarter as Rock Hill went up 40-37.

Stumbo had 12 more points in the fourth quarter but McCombs scored 8 points including a 30-foot desperation shot with seven seconds left that tied the game and for the first overtime.

Each team scored 5 points in the first overtime before South Gallia took a 68-67 lead with time running out in the second overtime.

But after two missed attempts, Stumbo got a putback with seven seconds left to give Rock Hill a 69-68 lead and the Redmen held on for the win.
