It took a fourth-quarter rally, but the North Fayette Valley girls won their first basketball game of the season, 46-42, over South Winn Friday in Calmar. 

The first half was a seesaw affair with SW taking an 8-5 advantage in the first quarter, but the TigerHawks rallied for a 19-18 lead by halftime.

The Warriors responded with a 17-13 edge in the third quarter.

One thing noted about the NFV girls this season is they don’t quit. Over the final eight minutes they put on the defensive clamps and outhustled their hosts, 14-7, to pick up win number one.
