South Johnston girls bow out of playoffs to Fayetteville Terry Sanford

South Johnston’s last shot at extending a memorable 21-win season banked softly off of the square of the backboard, then danced off of the front of the rim Wednesday night, ending the Trojans’ bid for a berth in the girls basketball sectional finals. The shot, just like the high school careers of seven seniors, then fell innocently to the floor. Sixth-seeded South Johnston (21-6) came oh-so-close in a 36-33 loss to 11th-seeded Terry Sanford on Wednesday in the second round of the girls’ basketball state playoffs.
