HOLLY POND — Molly McKelvy poured in a game-high 24 points, Fairview's varsity girls produced a dominant fourth-quarter effort, and the Lady Aggies picked up a 70-44 road triumph against Holly Pond on Tuesday night.

Fairview led 47-41 entering the final quarter but cranked up the defensive pressure in those final eight minutes, outscoring the Lady Broncos 23-3 to turn a close contest into a runaway victory.

Emma Garcia garnered 10 points for the Lady Aggies, while Daisy Manasco (nine), Morgan Lindsay (nine) and Jacy Gorham (eight) were next in line offensively for coach Justin Billings.

Kaylee Stallings led Holly Pond with 17 points, while Sarah Finley pitched in 10.

Stallings sank four 3-pointers in the second quarter to help keep the Lady Broncos in it.

Billings, however, was happy to see more urgency from his team in the second half.

"First half, we weren't doing the small things," he said. "At halftime, that was my point of emphasis — making sure we do the small things. Our energy and effort was way better in the second half, and we concentrated on the small things. I think that was the big difference. Eventually, we finally settled down and got the nerves out and concentrated on what we were doing. That helped us stretch the lead out."

Fairview hosts Vinemont on Friday night.

Holly Pond, meanwhile, travels to Cold Springs.
