Raiders bow out in state semi-finals

The Stonewall Jackson varsity girls basketball team once again came up short in its bid to capture the program's first-ever Group AAA state championship, falling to Princess Anne 48 to 38 in the state semi-finals on Monday night in Richmond.
It's the second time in three years the Cavaliers (30-1 overall) have eliminated the Raiders (24-4) from the state playoffs, doing so by a 65 to 39 margin last time in 2011 during the state title game.
Stonewall actually jumped out to a 9 to 3 advantage at the end of the first quarter but Princess Anne out-shot the group from Manassas the entire rest of the match at the Siegel Center.
"We were just never able to regain the lead," said Stonewall head coach Diana Martinez.
Nicole Floyd earned a double-double with 12 points and 18 rebounds while Amanda Hinton contributed another 10 points for Stonewall.
That at least kept the Raiders within striking distance at halftime, down 20 to 16. That margin expanded to 34 to 17 by the end of the third quarter though on the strength of 23 points on the night from Cavaliers' stand-out Morgan Cooper.
Neither team shot particularly well. In fact, Hinton drained Stonewall's only successful 3-pointer out of nine attempts. Princess Anne, now set to appear in its fifth-straight state championship Friday, missed all six of their shots from behind the arc.
