Double-figure scoring games by Fairfield’s Kelsey Clark, Faith Donley and Isabelle Hale were big factors in the Lady Lions winning Monday night at Miami Trace High School, as FHS defeated the host Lady Panthers, 55-43. 

Fairfield won the non-conference thanks in part to a 19-point scoring effort by Clark, plus Donley had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Hale finished the game with 10 points.

For the game, Clark’s 19 points consisted of six two-point baskets and a 7-of-9 performance from the free-throw line. She also collected eight rebounds, five assists and two blocks. 

Donley’s 12 points came off four two-point buckets, and she was 4-of-6 from the free-throw line. Donley not only had the 10 rebounds, but she collected three assists and two steals. 

Hale ended the game with not only the 10 points — as those points were scored off two 3-pointers and two two-point baskets — but she also had five rebounds and a steal. 

Fairfield led 13-10 after the first quarter and trailed 22-18 at halftime, as MTHS scored 12 points in the second and the Lady Lions added five points to their total in the same quarter. 

The second half saw Fairfield outscore the Lady Lions 16-14 in the third quarter, and the fourth frame saw FHS score 21 points, as they held Miami Trace to seven points. 

Also for the Lady Lions, Kassi Miller totaled seven points with two 3-pointers and a made free throw, while teammate Vivian Henninger scored four points while collecting five rebounds, three steals and one assist. 

Rilee Quickle totaled three points, five rebounds, two steals and one assist. Jaeden Drury totaled two points and one rebound for FHS in the win. 

Team totals for Fairfield included 14 two-point baskets, five 3-pointers and they were 14-of-21 from the free-throw line. FHS also collected 35 rebounds, 12 assists, two blocks and eight steals. The Lady Lions committed nine turnovers. 

The win moves Fairfield to 8-13 overall, and they are 5-7 in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference. 

FHS has one SHAC and regular-season game left on the schedule as they are scheduled to host the Fayetteville Lady Rockets on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
