With senior forward Kayla Stamper leading the way, Wolfe County came into the Estill gym on Friday looking to boost their record to 11-11, but they left town at 10-12.
In commenting on the 49-43 victory, Estill coach Mark McKinley noted it was “A nice win over a good Wolfe County team.
“The Stamper girl is signing with Asbury on a basketball scholarship and can play.
“We had balanced scoring, and our defense was pretty good.”
The defense was good enough to hold Stamper to 20, and allow only one other player to reach double figures.
Meanwhile, Estill used a balanced attack that saw Julia Harris leading the way with 12 points.
Cassidy Flynn added 11, Chelsea Alexander 9, Candace Gould 7, April Hall 6, and Sylena Neal 4.
McKinley appreciated the fact some younger players were able to gain experience in an expected blowout of 0-22 Cordia on Saturday in the Riverside Prep Classic at Riverside Christian.
Estill was up 29-4 at the half after holding Cordia scoreless in the first quarter. The final score was 59-18.
Alexander tallied 12 points in limited action, C. Flynn 6, Gould 4, Neal 3, Harris 3, Hall 5, Chelsea Honchell 8, Randi Rison 3, Jessie Carter 4, Ashleigh Puckett 2, Natascha Richardson 2, and Kennedy Flynn 7.
Estill is scheduled to host Madison Southern at 7:30. The girls from Berea are 8-16 on the season.
A trip to powerhouse Breathitt County (15-6) is on tap for Friday for an 8 p.m. match up.
