For a couple of minutes in the opening of the Region 2A Girls’ Basketball Regional game in Floyd Monday night, Gretna had a 2-2 tie.
Then the Floyd County Lady Buffaloes put on one of their trademarked games of domination and that brief moment of parity disappeared into the night.
Floyd led 24-4 at the end of the first quarter, 61-7 at the half, 85-13 at the end of the third period and won 98-18 to advance to the region semi-final in Tazwell on Wednesday.
Six Lady Buffs hit double figures in scoring, led by Regan Wiseman’s 20 points, followed by Emily Boothe and Hannah Belshan with 12 each, Ashley Gallimore (11) and Michaela Thompson and Carley Lytton with 10 each.
Floyd downed five three pointers. Gretna had none.
