In spite of an incredible fourth quarter comeback, the Lady Knights fell to Cosby 88-83 in overtime. The Titans, ranked #1 in the Central Region used superior height and balanced scoring to maintain a double digit lead for most of the game. The Knights outscored the Titans 32-19 in the 4th quarter capped by a pair of threes by Shawnee Sweeney and Alyssa Frye in the game’s last 30 seconds. The Knights briefly led in OT but couldn’t hang on. Ka’lia Johnson tallied 34 points while Frye added 26. Dale travels to William and Mary on Saturday to take on Princess Anne.
As for the boys varsity squad, the Knights could not quite come back from a horrid first half shooting display and fell to Petersburg in Monday’s Regional final. A Wave parade to the free throw line allowed Petersburg to hold on to a 70-61 victory at the Siegel Center. Dale will travel to William and Mary Saturday to take on Eastern Region Champion Norcom.
