After two evenly-matched quarters, Highland fell to visiting River Valley by a 47-31 margin in a Tuesday night girls’ basketball game.

The Lady Scots (7-12, 4-9) were behind by a 14-5 margin after eight minutes of play, but rallied to take a 19-18 lead into the half. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get on the board in the third quarter and RV went back in front by a 30-19 score — a lead they would not relinquish.

Emma West tallied a game-high 20 points for Highland, while Brylinn Tuggle contributed nine.
