Jackson, Terry lead Fairview over Elliott for All 'A' title


To top it off, by intermission all five Elliott County (14-6) starters had two fouls. Result: Fairview, 34-26.

Knipp did just about everything but sell popcorn in the second half.

There were his two offensive rebounds and stick-back with 5:44 to go in the third quarter, followed by a blocked shot a minute later and another field goal, which brought the Lions to within 36-35.

In the fourth quarter, Knipp drained three 3-pointers, turned a steal off Jackson into a field goal, hit three free throws and scored the Lions’ last basket with 1:51 to go.

The Eagles (14-2) eventually overwhelmed the Lions. Terry scored six of his team’s last 10 points over the final 2:15.

Fairview plays Owensboro Catholic in the opening round of the state tournament at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Eastern Kentucky University’s McBrayer Arena.

“Fairview played well,” Elliott County coach Greg Adkins said. “Fairview’s a good team.”

Fairview (72) – Collins 15, Stai 6, Terry 22, Jackson 23, Gunter 6. PF: 17. FT: 15-of-22. 3-pointers: Jackson 5, Terry 2.

Elliott County (59) – Nickell 12, Knipp 34, Faulkner 3, Ison 2. PF: 24. FT: 9-of-13. 3-pointers: Knipp 3, Nickell 2, Faulkner.

The Lady Devils won the title in their first year of eligibility behind Kayla Parsons’ 16 points and Gabrielle Cassity’s 15.

“This is probably the last time we’ll be in the All “A,” so we wanted to make our mark,” Parsons said.

Russell (8-7) started slowly but recovered nicely. After Bath County (5-11) took a 4-0 lead a little more than two minutes into the game, the Lady Devils reeled off a 17-4 run the rest of the quarter.
