After knocking off fourth-seeded Northwood Temple in the first round of the Sandhills Athletic Conference tournament, the fifth-seeded varsity girls basketball team from Cape Fear Christian Academy met top-seeded Trinity in the semifinals on Friday at Freedom Christian in Fayetteville.
Trinity advanced to the championship tonight with a 54-11 win.
CFCA coach Bobby Lamb said the experience had value for his club.
“You don’t improve unless you play good competition,” Lamb said. “(Trinity) is a very good team.”
Zykia Matthews led the Lady Eagles with seven points. Kristen Bass had two points, hitting a hoop that put CFCA into double figures midway the fourth quarter. Aubree Bass and Rachel Thornton had one point each.
“We had too many turnovers,” Lamb said.
Lavariah Armstead led Trinity (19-2) with 14 points and Tamera Hooker scored 13.
“I appreciated the support of our fans,” Lamb said.
CFCA (9-18) will learn its seeding for the NCISAA 1-A tournament on Sunday evening.
