Catch a Tiger by the tail: Fayette girls stomp Smithton 48-23 for first win of season
With 3:42 to play in the fourth quarter, the running clock had gone into effect in Thursday’s contest between the Fayette and Smithton girls.
Running clocks haven’t been a pleasant sight for the Lady Falcons over the past two seasons, but this time, they were the ones triggering the turbo clock, not their opponent.
Mikela Howell made a pair of free throws to stretch Fayette’s lead to 31 points with 3:41 to play in the fourth quarter. Fayette snapped a six-game losing steak to open the 2014-15 season, beating Smithton 48-23.

Falcons wrap up December with lopsided wins at home
The east scoreboard in the Fayette High School gym was out of service for the first 30 minutes of Tuesday night’s middle school basketball doubleheader between Clark Middle School and St. Joseph Catholic of Salisbury.
When it came back on, the Ravens may have wished the wiring was still bad.
The scoreboard showed Fayette’s girls leading 23-3 at halftime, and that lead only continued to grow the rest of the game. The Lady Falcons will head into the new year with a 6-4 record after defeating St. Joseph 32-8.

Hackman reaches 1,000 points at Glasgow
Glasgow may not have played its best basketball of the season Thursday night, but the Yellowjackets will begin the winter break still among the undefeated.
Westran’s halftime lead disappeared in the third quarter and the Glasgow boys improved to 8-0 this season with a 58-54 win at home.
Blake Hackman had the spotlight for a moment in Thursday’s game. The senior scored a team-high 16 points, but his first two points of the game pushed him over the 1,000-point plateau for his career. Hackman made 6-of-11 shots, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range.
