ROCK HILL – The Blythewood girls’ basketball team came from behind twice and got 21 points from Jasrial Thompson to defeat the Rock Hill Bearcats 53-50 Tuesday night at Rock Hill.

The Lady Bengals trailed 20-8 after one period of play but raced back to even things at 26 by halftime. Rock Hill started the fourth quarter with a 9-3 run to take a 47-42 lead, but Blythewood outscored the Lady Bearcats 11-3 down the stretch.

Rock Hill had a chance to send the game to overtime but a desperation 3-pointer drew nothing but air as the final horn sounded.
