The Skyhawks girls had to mount a late comeback, using suffocating defense and opportunity to come from behind to knock off Prince George 50-46 to win the Conference 12 Girls Basketball Championship Wednesday night at Manchester High School.
In the Boys Final, L.C. Bird used a 12-3 late first quarter run to take a lead they would relinquish as the Skyhawks moved to 22-2 with an 86-66 win over Matoaca.
Next up is Monday's 5A South Region Quarterfinals. The Skyhawks girls will host the doubleheader and face Deep Run in the second game at approximately 7:45pm.
The boys head across the James River to Hermitage High School, where they will, too, face Deep Run in the 5A South Region Quarterfinals at around 8pm Monday. Matoaca advances to face Conference 11 champion Henrico in a "Battle of Warriors" at 6pm.
