Eastern Guilford’s amazing season came to an end in round two at the hands of
Western Harnett 71-60 in overtime in Lillington, North Carolina. Eastern gave a
tremendous effort but ran out of gas in the overtime period as they were out
scored 12-1. Eastern had a two point lead with 59 seconds left in regulation but
allowed a Western Harnett player to rebound the ball and convert to tie it with
30 seconds left on the clock. Neither team would get a good shot at the end
in regulation play. Western Harnett score first in overtime and then capitalize
with 8 free throws to cement the victory. Eastern Guilford Senior Miranda
Jenkins ended her brilliant high school career by finishing with a career high of
41 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 6 blocks to help keep the young
Wildcats in contention. Eastern finished the year at 23-6 and 11-3 in Conference
play and won the Conference Tournament Championship against regular season
Conference Champs Northern Guilford in a thrilling double overtime win 56-52.
