In a low scoring affair, the Barnwell High girls varsity basketball team defeated Calhoun County 21-17 Friday for their first region win of the season.
Efficient offense certainly wasn't the order of business of the night. The teams combined for only 11 first half points on seven of 29 shooting from the field.
In the end, however, the Lady Warhorses were just a little better than the Lady Saints.
Much of thanks for Barnwell High goes to Dominique Daniels and Alexis Avilia.
After being held scoreless in the first half, Daniels found her shooting touch in the second half with eight points on four of six shooting from the field.
Avilia had a good, all-around performance with six points, nine steals and six rebounds.
Barnwell High School coach Adrian Bell said the team continues to make positive strides.
"We finally got our first region win after three tries," Bell said.
"It was a very good defensive performance by our players. In the first half, we were our own worst enemy with turnovers and missed shots in the paint. In the second half, we executed better on both ends of the court."
Several other players shining for Barnwell High were Taylor Brown, Sharita Wright and Jeneka Williams. Brown had two points, six steals and three assists. Wright, who led with eight rebounds, scored four points. Williams, who left the game in the second half with a sore knee, hit a three-pointer in the first quarter.
"Right now, we're still searching for consistency," Bell said. "Tonight, we came out and earned this win. We need to play at this level every game."
