Fillmore Central Girls Close Out Kingsland At Free-Throw Line
Free-throws were key for the Fillmore Central Falcons as they were able to come back in the second half and takedown Kingsland in the second game of a doubleheader Friday night in Spring Valley 63-56.
The Knights led for a majority of the first half with solid play from Emily Miner, who finished with 14 points. She did a great job rebounding, along with hitting shots near the rim to help Kingsland take an early lead.
Foul trouble was a problem for the Knights, who had two players foul out, and had another two players with four fouls. It forced them to lose their aggressiveness a little bit in the second half, and also sent the Falcons to the free-throw line.
The Falcons turned up the pressure defensively, led by Kassidy Broadwater. Broadwater did a great job of putting pressure on the Knights in the second half, and it helped her reach 20 points, but she also fouled out.
The aggressive play was from both teams, but it was the Falcons who were able to cash in at the free-throw line. Kandace Sikkink took advantage at the line and finished with 15 points.
Miner finished with 14 to lead Kingsland. Samantha Wernimont and Alexys Harwood finished with 9 to help the Knights offense.
The Falcons moved to 7-3 with the win, while the Knights fell to 6-4.
