WINNSBORO (Feb. 10, 2016) – On senior night Tuesday, the Lady Griffins (15-5, 9-2) wanted make sure their four seniors enjoyed their final game in the Griffins’ Den. Fairfield Central did just that, routing the Mid-Carolina Rebels 54-22.

“We played a good game tonight on both ends of the floor,” Fairfield Central head coach Amelia Miller said. “I am so proud of my seniors and I am happy I could send them out with a great win in their last home game.”

Senior Tanise Davis led the way, scoring 11 of her 17 points in the first half as the Lady Griffins outscored Mid-Carolina 27-6 in the opening frame. Despite a slow start by the Lady Griffins, who scored only 10 points in the first quarter, Davis jumped out of the gate in the second quarter, dumping in 9 quick points. A 3-pointer by senior Chyna Moore paved the way to a 12-0 run as Fairfield Central went into halftime up 27-6.

“Our runs in the first and second half keyed our win tonight,” Miller said. “Despite missing a bunch of shots tonight, our defense still allowed us to continue our dominance on the court.”

Jameka Henderson scored 6 points in the third quarter to continue the Lady Griffins’ run as they outscored the Lady Rebels 16-4 in the period. Fairfield Central outscored the Lady Rebels 27-16 in the second half, despite Mid-Carolina outscoring Fairfield Central 12-11 to end the game.

“We needed to continue our nine-game win streak to remain a half game behind Keenan as we prepare to face them for the region crown,” Moore said. “I believe we are more prepared to avenge our earlier loss to them.”
