The Caverna Lady Colonels couldn’t quite pull off the win Wednesday, losing 55-42 to Nelson County in the first round of the 5th Region Girls Basketball Tournament.
Caverna coach Cornelius Faulkner said the game was pretty close until the third quarter.
“They outscored us in the third, 18-10, and that was really a decicive moment in the game,” Faulkner said.
During the first quarter, the Lady Colonels led by one, 14-13. Nelson County rallied in the second period to lead 42-31.
Even with the loss, Faulkner said his team played well.
Madison Faulkner commanded the court for the Lady Colonels with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Ciara Waggoner scored 11, while Kiara Kirk tipped in 3.
Staysha Edwards and Shanda Bradley helped out with two points a piece.
Faulkner said he is looking forward to next season.
“The good news is, I have everyone back next near,” he said.
