The Hillsboro Lady Indians traveled to Fayette County to take on the Miami Trace Lady Panthers on Wednesday in a Frontier Athletic Conference basketball contest.

Hillsboro came into Wednesday’s game at 0-1 in FAC play, losing to Jackson by a score of 46-29 on Nov. 28. Miami Trace was 1-0 in conference play ahead of this match-up, defeating McClain 40-32 on Nov. 26.

Miami Trace won the game 54-28 to extend its season record to 3-2 and their conference record to 2-0. Hillsboro fell to 2-3 with the loss and 0-2 in FAC play.

The Lady Panthers held onto a 12-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Hillsboro opened the second quarter with a corner three-pointer from Addyson Miles to cut the lead to 12-9. From that point, Miami Trace went on a 7-0 run to extend its lead to 19-9.

Blake Herdman of Hillsboro connected on a three-point basket to stop the run and cut the lead to seven points.

On the ensuing possession, Ellie Robinette buried a triple for the Lady Panthers to get the lead back to ten, 22-12.

Hillsboro later converted two free throws to cut the lead to eight points, which was the score at the half as Miami Trace led 22-14.

Hillery “Bean” Jacobs of Miami Trace led all scorers with nine points at the break.

The third quarter saw the Lady Panthers lead by as many as 22 points as they pulled ahead to a 40-20 lead going into the final quarter.

Miami Trace outscored Hillsboro 14-8 in the fourth quarter, cruising to a 54-28 victory.

Miami Trace head coach Kayla Dettwiller spoke about the victory.

“Hillsboro, give them credit. They’re young, they’re fast. They moved the ball well. They get up and they pressure you,” said Miami Trace Kayla (Overstake) Dettwiller, a McClain High School graduate. “They’re very guard oriented and that’s not always the best match-up for us because we have a few post players. Our kids, they had times where we allowed their speed to speed us up, but then we settled back down. When we started settling back down and took care of the ball and moved the ball, we found the open person and made unselfish passes. It just took a little while to get settled down.”

Jacobs led all scorers with 10 points and 14 rebounds, earning a double-double on the night. Jacobs also recorded four assists and two steals.

Hillsboro was led by Herdman with seven points, followed by Addyson and Kobie Miles with five, Kylie Scott with four, Peighton Bledsoe and Maddie Taylor with three, and Kallie Fraley with one.

Hillsboro hosts Lynchburg-Clay on Saturday in a non-conference contest.

Miami Trace hosts East Clinton Saturday night with a 6:30 p.m. varsity tip-off.
