STEPHENS CITY - It wasn't pretty, but according to Skyline coach Jim Kenney, "he'll take it."
Despite committing 28 turnovers, the Hawks were able to pick up their first district win this season, defeating Sherando 44-38 on Friday night.
Kelsey Corcoran had a game-high 18 points and teammate Taylor Henry finished with 14.
"Not to take anything away from Sherando because they fought the entire game," Kenney said, "but I was just a little disappointed in our effort tonight. ... We came out flat and we never could quite pick it up like we needed to. I'll take the win, though."
Skyline never trailed in Friday's contest and was able to force 33 turnovers and keep the Warriors frustrated on offense. Sherando shot less than 25 percent, connecting on only 14-of-51 shots. Brooklyn Wilson led the Warriors with 10 points while Morgan Sirbaugh had nine in the loss.
"I told the girls it was going to be that type of ballgame," Sherando coach Tim Davis said. "I knew it was going to be a war and it came down to the team that shot better. I don't know what their shooting percentage was, but I can guarantee it was better than ours.
"I thought Henry and Corcoran played very well, Corcoran especially. She was very strong underneath, was always a presence. I thought she had a really good game."
