The Southwestern Piasa Birds faced a double-digits deficit before they scored their first point Saturday night. And there would be no rally against the Gillespie Miners.
Gillespie extended its winning streak to six in a row with a 55-14 victory over the Birds in a South Central Conference girls basketball game at The Pit in Gillespie. The Miners are 8-3 and join Staunton and Hillsboro at 2-0 in SCC play. Southwestern is 5-5 and 0-2.
