Trail boys capture 10th straight; Fayetteville, OH, MH girls post wins

In recent high school basketball games:

Fayetteville 76

Oak Hill 46

Class A No. 7 Fayetteville pulled away from host Oak Hill in the second half to secure the triumph Tuesday.

Oak Hill trailed by just 29-23 at halftime.

“We just quit playing defense,” said Red Devil assistant Kelly Epperly, who guided the team in the absence of coach Stuff Lynch, sidelined for two games due to technicals received in earlier games. And, the Pirates resorted to a box-and-one on leading OHHS scorer Ashley Milstrey, Epperly added.

Casey Smith tallied 21 points to pace four Pirates in double figures. Cayla Rhodes added 15, and Stephanie Nickell and Hannah Bare chipped in 11 each.

Milstrey bucketed a game-high 29 points for Oak Hill (2-17).
