After losing its first three region games by a combined 15 points, Hilton Head High girls basketball appeared to be in for another fight to the finish Friday, but the Seahawks hit their stride after halftime and pulled away for a 47-22 victory at Beaufort High for their first Region 7-4A win.
The Seahawks led 13-11 after a sloppy first half, but they heated up after halftime and continued their stifling defense to surge to a lopsided win.
Janiya Ferebee hit a trio of 3-pointers and scored 10 of her game-high 15 points in the second half to lead the Seahawks. Chyna Fields was in double digits for a second straight game with 10 points, and Lynda Young added nine in her second game back from injury.
Quinn Wilson scored seven points to lead Beaufort.
Both teams continue region play Tuesday, as HHIHS (6-9, 1-3) hosts May River while Beaufort (2-9, 0-3) hosts Lucy Beckham.
