The Harrison County Fillies (8-6) returned to action on the Hilltop for the first time since Dec. 10 last Thursday when they played host to the Bracken County Lady Bears (6-7). The homecoming was good for the Fillies, who won the game 65-45.
The Fillies capitalized on an impressive first quarter to take control of the game. The defense held Bracken County to just seven points while scoring 21 on the offensive end of the floor.
The Lady Bears outscored the Fillies 11-9 in the second quarter to make the halftime score a 30-18 advantage for Harrison County.
After the break, the Fillies posted 21 points in the third quarter and held the Lady Bears to only 11.
In the final quarter, Bracken scored one more point than the Fillies, 15-14, to leave the final score 65-45.
Fillies junior Charley Hatfield led the way for the home team scoring a game-high 21 points.
Weve been waiting on that to happen with Charley, said Fillies Coach Mac Whitaker. She does really well in practice, but for some reason it had not been translating into the games. We are a different team when she is scoring like that.
Senior Megan Bullock chipped in 14 points for the Fillies.
On Saturday, the Fillies played host to Maysville St. Pat and defeated the Lady Saints (5-7) by a close score of 46-43.
