PEDRO — You don’t forget that first kiss and you don’t forget that first win.
The Rock Hill Redwomen will be remembering their first win of the season as a strong defensive performance as they shut down the New Boston Lady Tigers 44-31 on Monday.
The win was also the first career coaching victory for Eric Bailey who had nothing but praise for his team.
“We played pretty good defense. We held them to single digit points in each quarter. That’s our goal. Any time you do that, you help your chances of winning,” said Bailey.
Emma Scott and Hadyn Bailey scored 14 points each to lead the Redwomen as seven players reached the scoring column. Hope Easterling added 8 points in the winning effort.
