Despite rallying from a 15-point deficit to start the fourth quarter and cutting the Cartersville’s lead to two points midway through the period, the Lady Warriors just couldn’t finish off the comeback as they fell in their regular-season finale, 43-35.

The loss drops Gordon Central (8-16, 5-9) into the No. 6 seed for the Region 5-AAA Tournament, which starts on Wednesday at Sonoraville. The Lady Warriors will play Coahulla Creek in the opening round at 4 p.m.

Ashley Farrell and Tiffany Lincoln had 10 points each to lead Gordon Central on Monday.

The Lady Warriors trailed 21-11 at the half after failing to score in the second quarter. They then trailed 37-22 at the end of the third before battling back.
