PEDRO — Karli Davis had been quiet offensively during the first half on Thursday. She could have been arrested for disturbing the peace in the second half.
With Chesapeake trailing Rock Hill 22-17 at the half, Davis scored 11 of her 13 points in the second half as the Lady Panthers rallied to beat the Redwomen 43-35 in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
Maddie Ward also came to life for the Lady Panthers with nine of her 11 points after the break.
Rock Hill was led by Makayla Scott with 12 points and Rileigh Morris scored eight — all in the first half.
Morris hit a 3-pointer and scored six points while Savannah Cade had four more in the first quarter as Rock Hill (0-3, -2) took a 14-9 lead.
Scott got four points in the second quarter as both teams scored eight points and it was 22-17 at the half.
While Chesapeake’s offense picked up in the third quarter as David scored six points and Blake Anderson got six of her seven points, Rock Hill went the other direction with only five points.
Ward and Davis combined for 11 points in the fourth quarter while Rock Hill managed just eight points — four by Scott and five by Kylee Howard including a 3-pointer.
Chesapeake plays at Wheelersbureg on Saturday while Rock Hill visits Ironton on Monday.
