The Redhawks emerged stronger in the second half, holding off Flora 17-11 in the third quarter and 16-14 in the fourth to handily take the 57-39 win.

The Redhawks’ game against the Demons on Jan. 11 was cancelled because of Lugoff-Elgin on Covid protocol. They are scheduled to play at Dreher on Friday in a region contest, at Lower Richland on Saturday, and will host Irmo on Jan. 18 for another region game.
