SMITHFIELD --Wayne Christian trimmed a seven-point deficit with 90 seconds to play down to two but got no closer in a 48-46 loss to Crossroads Christian on Tuesday night in the semifinals of the Carolina Christian 1-A girls' basketball tournament.

The Eagles (14-7) trailed by seven points with 90 seconds to play and cut the margin to two but failed to convert on three opportunities to tie or take the lead as time expired.

Kayla Kennedy scored 17 points and Hanna Kaler contributed 12 points and 10 rebounds. Kaitlyn Kosuda chipped in 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Wayne Christian will learn this weekend if it has received a bit in the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association State playoffs.
