The Summers County Bobcats fall just shy of a sectional championship Friday night in Princeton losing to Greater Beckley Christian 49-46 in the sectional final.
Dacota Thomas led the Bobcats with 18 points and Jamison Hamm added 14 points in the loss. The Crusaders have defeated the Bobcats three times this season, with all being very good games that Summers County just managed to come up short in.
The Bobcats can still punch their ticket to Charleston and the state tournament, but the road gets even rockier for Summers County. They now must beat the Fayetteville Pirates who are 23-0 on the season.
Tip-Off is set for 7 p.m. next Thursday night in Fayetteville with the winner going to Charleston and the 2017 Boys State Tournament.
