Second Half Run Leads SFCC to Win
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
The Lady Roadrunners defeated the Mineral Area College Lady Cardinals 71-64 in their first Region 16 road contest of the season Jan. 25 in Park Hills.
 
SFCC (12-7, 4-1 in Region 16) used an 11-0 run capped with a jumper from sophomore guard Mary Sims in the second half to break a 53-53 tie and take control of the contest.
 
“We still had our legs,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “We never lost our energy. Mineral Area seemed to get a little tired. Our conditioning paid off.”
 
SFCC made the plays in the final six minutes to secure the 71-64 win, putting the Lady Roadrunners in second place in the region.
 
“It was a big win, especially since it was our first region game on the road,” said Bucher. “We knew it was going to be a hard-fought ballgame with second place on the line. You could tell our players were ready to go. It was really a great game.”
 
Sophomore guard Antoinette Taylor came off the bench to lead four Lady Roadrunners in double-figure scoring with 20 points. Freshman center Alecia Cooley contributed 16 points, pulled down a team-high nine rebounds and registered a team-high four steals. Sophomore forward Sydonia Daniels and Sims pitched in with 12 points each. Sims and sophomore guard/forward Apiphany Woods tied for the team lead in assists with three. Sophomore guard Adella Randle-EL and sophomore forward Tiana Jones tied for the team lead in blocked shots with two.
