Goshen and Felicity girls victors in sectional basketball tournament first round encounters

And then there were none.

The last of Clermont County’s varsity girls basketball teams have been eliminated from their respective sectional tournaments.

Noteworthy is the fact that Goshen’s Warriors and Felicity’s Cardinals did win a tournament game apiece, but they defeated fellow Southern Buckeye Conference members whom they had previously beaten during the regular season.

Division II

Goshen (number-two seed), champion of the Southern Buckeye Conference American (SBC-A) Division, was eliminated by defending sectional champion Taft 86-57. The game was played at Mason High School.

The Senators were in the lead at the end of each period 25-15, 42-27, and 65-47.
