Fyffe girls overcome rebounding deficiency, defeat Sand Rock

Fyffe’s Anabelle Taylor (42).

The Fyffe girls basketball team was largely out-rebounded by Sand Rock, but the Red Devils overcame the trouble by responding with offense.

Marie Woodall scored 18 points and Alexia Barber had 16 points and 10 rebounds to help Fyffe to a 55-41 win against the Wildcats in Fyffe on Thursday night.

Barber’s rebounding effort made up nearly half of the Red Devils’ total (21). Sand Rock (17-8) hauled in 41 rebounds in the game, but couldn’t keep up with Fyffe’s scoring output.

Anabelle Taylor finished with nine point and eight assists for Fyffe (19-5), and Madison Myers added eight points.

Lanie Henderson scored 12 points with nine rebounds for the Wildcats and Caley Garrett had nine points.

The Red Devils outscored Sand Rock 29-20 in the first half.
