Bandys had made a habit of overcoming double-digit deficits during its run in the 2A girls basketball playoffs.
Saturdayâ€™s deficit, though, was one it just couldnâ€™t overcome.
The Trojans fell behind by 12 points early and couldnâ€™t click on offense against Wilkes Central, falling 49-40 to the Eagles in the 2A West finals at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex.
Through 26 wins, a conference championship and a 2A West Region appearance, there has been a constant for the Bandys girls basketball team this season â€” point guard Allie Smith.
The senior captain takes the floor Saturday, leading the Lady Trojans (26-1) against Wilkes Central (24-4) for a right to reach their second-straight state title game.
Transferring from Newton-Conover High School this past summer, Anaiah Hooker wasnâ€™t sure what to expect with her new basketball team at Bandys.

Sara Goble read a sign before she entered the Annex at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds on Thursday
â€śExperience is what you get when you didnâ€™t get what you wanted the first time,â€ť Goble said. â€śThat just stuck with me this game.â€ť
That experience paid off on Thursday for Goble and the Bandys girls basketball team.
During a scrimmage this summer, the unthinkable happened to Bandys senior basketball player Haleigh Lackey.
The ACL in her left knee was torn â€” as were both her medial and lateral menisci.
â€śI was feeling like my life just basically ended,â€ť Lackey said. â€śBasketball is my life. Thatâ€™s all I ever do is eat, sleep and breathe basketball.â€ť
Playing basketball together since they were 4 years old, the bond between twin sisters Kendyl and Kasey Medlin runs extremely deep.
â€śWe think the same things, and I know where she is sometimes,â€ť Kasey said. â€śItâ€™s just instinct.â€ť
