Longview, Texas (Longview News-Journal) —
Canton played keep away in the fourth quarter, and the strategy paid off as it kept the Spring Hill Lady Panthers from advancing in the playoffs.
The No. 12 Eaglettes outscored the Lady Panthers 12-4 in the final period to eliminate Spring Hill with a 52-42 decision Wednesday night at Lobo Coliseum.
In a game that was originally scheduled to be played Tuesday in Tyler but was pushed back because of inclement weather, the margin never got to double digits either way through the first 31 minutes.
Spring Hill led 13-10 after the first quarter and used an 8-0 run in the second quarter to surge to a 23-16 lead.
