Pisgah girls take control in 3rd, defeat Fyffe

Fyffe’s Maggie Woodall, right, battles for possession during a semifinal-round game against Plainview in the Sand Mountain Tournament at DeKalb County Schools Coliseum in Rainsville on Thursday.

Marie Woodall and Gracie Hicks finished with 11 points apiece for the Fyffe girls, as Pisgah used a strong third quarter to pull away with a 71-50 victory in the Sand Mountain Tournament championship at DeKalb County Schools Coliseum in Rainsville on Saturday night.

The Red Devils (8-3) took a narrow 31-30 halftime lead, but Pisgah (13-0) held them to an 8-minute scoring drought between the third and fourth quarters to gain the needed separation and hold on for its third straight SMT championship. The Eagles outscored Fyffe 25-5 in the third.

Alexia Barber had six rebounds for Fyffe.

Molly Heard scored a game-high 25 points with 12 rebounds and six blocks for the Eagles. Kallie Tinker finished with 17 points and Madison Myers chipped in eight rebounds.
