Lord Botetourt High School handed the Floyd County Lady Buffs their first loss of the season with a one-point win last week in Daleville so the team was looking for revenge Monday night when the Cavaliers came to town.
But it took overtime for the Floyd girls’ to beat the pesky team from LB 65-61.
With three minutes to go in regulation, Floyd trailed 54-50 after leading by as much as 10 points in the third quarter. Floyd came back to tie it 54 all as time ran out. With time running out in OT, the Cavaliers were down by just Carmen Bolt stole an LB pass and took it downcourt for a layup to put the game out of reach.
A close call for a Floyd team that is expected to make a fourth straight appearance in the state finals in Richmond next year.
The boys’ Varsity and JV basketball teams play their last home games of the year Wednesday night and next week on the 22nd.
