Fairfield blew open what had been a close match through the first two quarters of play, a 16-14 Lady Eagle lead, to score 18 unanswered points after the lead had grown to 18-15, and all but settle the outcome after 3 periods!

They led 36-15 going into the final quarter, then rode the consistent play of Dameka Shed, Emily Knight, Brandi Carter, McKayla Thurman, Carrington Roberts, Kiera Birdow, and Joanna Zamora to a convincing and much-needed 49-27 victory!

The Fairfield Lady Eagles had split results on the hardwood last week evening out their season record at (11-11), (0-1) in district play. Last Tuesday, Jan. 10, they hosted the Jacksonville Lady Indians and overcame their huge, 6-foot-3-inch post player, getting her into foul trouble in the second period, after she had blocked several shot attempts!

Fairfield finally began hitting some key shots, and their constant defensive pressure began to pay dividends with turnovers converted to points. A close game, 25-21 at the half, saw the Lady Eagles gradually pull away in the third and fourth quarters to a double digit victory.

Fairfield's quest for a Bi-District softball title was ended by the hard hitting, powder-blue clad Lady Cougars from China Spring last week, 15-5. The abrupt end to a terrific turn-around season may have been hard to take for the Lady Eagles and their families and fans, but it didn't diminish the great memories accumulated by a District Championship team that overcame adversity, and won seven consecutive district games to end the regular season!
