ERWIN — Lady Devil Destinie Hayes dominated the boards and helped put her team back in winning ways.
Unicoi County (8-10, TRC 3-2) outscored the Lady Longhorns 24-6 in the second quarter and to negate Brooke Brown’s game-high 27-point effort and record a 51-42 victory in Three Rivers Conference action in the Devils Den Friday night.
“We stuck with our plan, defensively, and I thought we did and I thought we did a good job on defense early,” Lady Devil head coach Kerri King said.
Single-digit was the case in the first period of play. Johnson County (6-13, TRC 1-4) took the early 9-6 lead after rattling off seven stretch points inside the four-minute mark of the period off the hands of Brown and Kourtney Tolley.
