The Harrison County Fillies defeated the Hazard Lady Bulldogs Saturday in the Tates Creek Panorama played at Henry Clay.
The game was an unorthodox two 16-minute halves with a continuous clock so there really wasn’t much playing time.
The Fillies won the contest 19 to 15.
Hazard played a zone-on defense causing the Fillies to shoot from the perimeter but Harrison County struggled to find the range.
