Princeton comes up just short in third round loss to East Columbus

Princeton appeared to be on the way to a blowout loss midway of the second quarter against East Columbus Friday. The Bulldogs refused to let that happen, rallying to pull ahead in the third quarter. The same fate appeared to be waiting with three minutes to go when the Gators went up by 11 points. Princeton battled back again, tying the score at 66 with 29 seconds to play. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, they couldn’t clear that last hurdle, falling 67-66 in the third round of the 1A girls basketball playoffs Friday night, finishing the season with a 16-10 record. East Columbus (19-5) moves into this week’s regional tournament in Fayetteville.
