MONITEAU 51, KEYSTONE 44
KNOX, Pa. – Behind a strong second half from Emma Bair, Moniteau was able to hold off Keystone, 51-44, for its second KSAC South victory of the season.
Bair scored 15 of her team-high 20 points and grabbed nine of her 13 rebounds after halftime helping the Lady Warriors expand a two-point halftime lead, 19-17, into the seven-point win.
