Floyd County High School’s Lady Buffaloes lost to undefeated Wise County Central 53-37 in the Region 2A Final at Emory & Henry College in Marion Friday night.
Floyd led 14-11 at the end of the first quarter and 24-22 at the half but Wise Central held the normally high-scoring Lady Buffaloes to just two points in the final period.
Floyd could meet Central again in the state final.
That’s the bad news. The Lady Buffs still qualify to compete as one of the Final Four at the Virginia High School League state championship playoffs on Tuesday at the Siegel Center at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
A win there will put the team in the finals on Wednesday.
