Harnett Central girls survive Garner in 2OT

Posted January 31, 2013

Garner went into Harnett Central and pushed the number two team in the Greater Neuse River to the limit before falling in double overtime, 43-41.

The lady Trojans who trailed by just a single point (19-18) at halftime managed to hold a slim 31-30 lead with 4:01 to play in the fourth quarter only to see a lid placed on the bucket.

After Central tied the game on a free throw late in the game, Kelsey Bryan nailed a wide open lay up to give the Lady Trojans a 33-31 lead with five second left. But, Central raced down the court with some smart passing and scored at the buzzer to force the overtime.

In the first overtime, Garner kept things close with the game never reaching more than a three point margin as the two team battled and remained tied to force the second free period.

Harnett Central took a three point lead early in the second overtime and despite Garner cutting the lead to one point, the lady Trojans could not get over the hump and fell 43-41 in double overtime.

Garner will travel to Smithfield-Selma on Friday night for a 6:30 tip.
