FALLS CITY — Falls City’s girls basketball team cruised to a 49-22 win over Crosshill Christian on Friday. Brittany Varney scored a game-high 19 points, while Allison Kidd added 16 points to lead the Mountaineers.
“The girls came out with a lot of energy, intensity and focus,” Falls City coach Micke Kidd said. “It was nice to see them taking the basketball to the basket rather than settling for outside shots.”

“We were down one with about a minute left, and down three with 10 seconds left,” Kidd said. “It was a very close game in the second half.”
Varney had seven points against the Pirates.
