(FARMINGTON, Mo.) – The season came to a close for the Farmington Knights and the Central Lady Rebels Tuesday night on J98. The Farmington Knights lost to the #3 team in the state Cape Central Tigers by a final of 60-46. Farmington found themselves in a 9-2 hole quickly in this contest and trailed at the half 27-22.
In the third quarter the Knights were down by 13 heading into the end of the third when senior big man Cole Lawrence would drain a 3 as time expired to keep the game close.
However in the fourth quarter, senior point guard Bryce Sancegraw would foul out of the contest, which led to Farmington being unable to generate much offense for the final two minutes as Kinyon Hodges hammered the proverbial nail through the coffin.
After the game head coach Terry Noble says the early deficit really hindered them in the game.
Farmington’s season comes to a close at 25-3.In our second game of the night, the Cape Notre Dame Lady Bulldogs moved on to the state quarterfinals after defeating the Central Lady Rebels in comeback fashion by a final of 51-45.
