The Lady Bulldogs fell to the Vilonia Lady Eagles in the Conference Championship game, 77-69, on Wednesday evening, March 3.
Just 24 hours off of a dominant performance against Greenbriar, which included a 31-7 run in the 2nd period, the Lady Bulldogs went up against a very physical Vilonia squad.
The game against the Lady Eagles was originally slated for the week before the winter weather hit. The matchup would be a showdown between the top two teams in the conference.
The lead would change multiple times between the two teams. In the final seconds of the 2nd period, Vilonia drives down the court and pulls up at the 3 point line, and sinks it. Vilonia up 39-37 over Greenwood.
Going into 2nd half action the lead would once again change hands several times, with Greenwood going up 6 points at one point. Ally Sockey and Mady Cartwright would end up in foul trouble in the 4th. The two defenses of Greenwood and Vilonia would trade great defensive plays throughout the 2nd half.
In her last game at H.B. Stewart, Senior Kinley Fisher left it all on the court in an incredible game with 30 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. Abby Summitt had 9 points, 2 steals, 2 rebounds. Sockey and Cartwright both had 7 points a piece.
The Lady Bulldogs will be in action next week at the 5A State Tournament in Hot Springs.
