Lady Jeffs Advance In Sub-District Play

By Jim Phelps

Journal-News

Sports Editor

Two words describe Monday's first-round C1-2 Sub-District basketball game played at Wilber-Clatonia High School between Fairbury and Fillmore Central.

Intense and physical.

Fairbury overcame physical play by Fillmore Central to come away with a 49-42 win.

"This was very intense and physical game. No one wanted to lose and have their season end," Lady Jeffs coach Amy Engle said.

Fillmore Central the fifth seed in the tourney, rode the scoring of Maggie Malone with seven points, and Audrey Malone contributing four points to open an 11-8 lead after one quarter.

The momentum swung in Fairbury's favor in the second quarter, as the fourth seed Lady Jeffs got in to a better offensive flow.
