Last Ditch Effort Falls Short as CVCC Women’s Basketball Lose Road Contest

The Catawba Valley Community College women’s basketball team was edged out by Louisburg College on the road in the Roger G. Taylor Arena, 58-56.

Down by nine with 5:43 left in the game, the Red Hawks chipped away at the Louisburg lead, before overtaking them with 1:26 left leading 52-51. The two teams went back and forth until CVCC tied it up at 56 all with 10.3 seconds remaining. Louisburg called a timeout after a Red Hawk basket and set up the game winning shot with 1. 2 seconds left. CVCC’s three pointer at the buzzer hit the backboard but wouldn’t fall in.

The Red Hawks are 3-5 overall, 2-2 in Region X, Division 2 play. CVCC will go on the road Saturday to Richard Bland.
