Lady Cards Season comes to an end
February 27, 2011By Stuart Earp of East Wilkes High School
East Wilkes came out aggressive and led by a point after one quarter. Bishop moved ahead 26-22 by halftime and held a slim 38-33 edge heading into the final eight minutes.
The Cardinals just struggled to make shots and defensive stops in key situations. East swished only one three-pointer all night (after burying six on Wednesday against Albemarle). They also missed 15 free throws, including 11 in the final half. Bishop closed the game on a 19-5 run.
The Cards advanced back to the third round of the state playoffs for the second year in a row - and for the third time since 2007. East lost its season opener at home to North Stokes but won every other home game until Friday night - including a state playoff win against North Stokes this past Monday night.
