Phil Campbell basketball teams split area games with Danville

The Phil Campbell varsity girls have avenged an area loss to the Danville Hawks from earlier in the season, winning 48-41 at home Friday night.

Macy Hardy led the Bobcats with 17 points, scoring seven points in the first and fourth quarter to help Phil Campbell start strong and finish strong.

Phil Campbell led Danville 12-5 at the end of the first quarter and extended that lead to 21-12 at halftime.

Danville came back in the third quarter to cut Phil Campbell’s lead to 33-30, but the Bobcats controlled the fourth quarter to get the win.

Hannah Welborn followed Hardy with 10 points. Madison Branch and Layla Baker scored six points each. Allie Herring and Kaylie Motes added four points each. Sidda Rogers finished with one point.

The varsity boys were not so lucky. Also trying to avenge a road loss to Danville, Phil Campbell fought to the end but fell just short, losing 57-55.
