The Mount Airy varsity girls spread out the points Tuesday against South Stokes and earned a 69-51 victory on home court.
Their record is 13-8 overall and 6-7 in the conference.
The Sauras began grabbed an early lead over the Bears, taking a one-point advantage at the end of the first quarter, 14-13.
The Bears, though, outscored the visitors 15-4 in the second period for a 28-18 halftime advantage.
Head Coach Howard Mayo said the Bears shot 48 percent in the first half in racing to the ten-point advantage.
Mayo said, “We did a good job of pressuring the ball and having rotation, which created turnovers for us. We forced them into 23 for the game.”
Mayo said Alex Atkins had five steals and Mikalya Seivers had four.
The Lady Bears slowed down Hanna Wood, Sam Hill and Shay Hampton, all high scorers for the Sauras. They used tenacious defense in the second quarter and were able to contain the players by executing a half-court trap, said Mayo.
The coach said in the third quarter the Bears hit four three-pointers and were three out of four from the free-throw line to put some distance between them and the Sauras at 51-33.
Both Mikalya Seivers and Davi Barbour scored 11 points for the Bears. Kathyrn Beasley scored ten. Both Dana Brown and Jasmine Varney scored eight. Alex Atkins scored six, Symone Simmons scored five, and Ayano Shelton had four. Andi Moore and Skyler Flippen scored three.
Sam Hill of South Stokes was the game high scorer with 14 points. Both Shay Hampton and Hannah Wood scored 10 each for the Sauras.
