Dutch Fork hosts Irmo today in key 5-4A girls outing

Dutch Fork and Irmo rebounded from Tuesday losses on Friday, setting up a key Region 5-4A girls game today at Dutch Fork.

The host Silver Foxes (12-4, 8-1) need a win to avoid falling into a tie with Orangeburg-Wilkinson for first place for four games left to play. The visiting Yellow Jackets (13-6, 6-3) must win to keep alive any hopes they might have of winning the region title.

Aliana Coates scored 17 points in DF’s 54-24 win at White Knoll on Friday. Brooke McCants (11 points), Briana Stanton (11) and Sarah Green (10) led Irmo to a 50-38 win over North Augusta.
