BRISTOL, Va. (WSET) - Lord Botetourt held off a late rally from Abingdon to beat the Falcons 54-51 Tuesday night in the Class 3 state semifinals at Virginia High School in Bristol.
Fourth quarter, Botetourt up 3, the Cavs' Miette Veldman gets the hoop AND the foul!
Later, it's Jenna Alam with a three from the top of the key!
Abingdon's Peyton Carter caught fire, drilling three straight 3s to pull the Falcons within one with 21 seconds left.
But an Abingdon 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie wouldn't go down, Botetourt wins by three to advance to Saturday's state title game.
The Cavaliers will face Hopewell for the state title Saturday morning at 11 at VCU's Siegel Center.
