The Central Christian Lady Crusaders found out Saturday that it’s hard to beat a team three times in one season.
After knocking off Camp Jewell twice in the regular season, the Lady Crusaders fell in a heartbreaking 43-42 contest in the region championship.
The loss dropped Central to 23-4.
Central had won 19 games in a row before dropping the contest to Camp Jewell.
Central, which plays in the GAPPS, opens its run for a state title when the state tournament begins Tuesday.
Both Central teams will play at home with the boys tipping off at 5:30, followed by the girls at 7.
