HILLSVILLE –– The 1,000th point of Britney Allen’s career came late in the second period. Her third assist of the day came when it really mattered.
Leading a fast break with the score tied at 35, Allen kicked out to Makenley Davis and Davis swished a 3-pointer at the buzzer, lifting Richlands over Carroll County 38-35 Saturday in a crucial Southwest District girls’ game.
The game-winning shot capped a 9-1 run over the final 2:50 for Richlands (9-2 overall, 2-1 district). Allen scored the first six of those points.
