Sidney Wear led the Cardinals with 20 points against Louisiana in the district game.

Just four days after losing soundly to Clarence Cannon Conference Champion Louisiana, the South Shelby Cardinals may have saved their best game for last as they took the Bulldogs to overtime before falling to the second seed 74-71 in overtime in district action at Sturgeon High School on Tuesday, Feb. 24.
   The Cardinals used a balanced attack and a no-quit approach against the talented Bulldogs. The Cardinals jumped out to an early lead before Louisiana was able to come back and take a one point lead, 16-15 after one quarter of play. The Cardinals stayed right there with them in the second quarter as they were out-scored 15-13 and trailed 31-28 at the half.
   Louisiana looked as though it would take control in the third quarter and cruse through the rest of the game. The Bulldogs outscored the Cardinals 22-14 to extend the lead to 53-42 with just a quarter left. South Shelby had other things in mind. The Cardinals were able to get stops on the defensive end and convert on the offensive end to chip away at the lead. The Cardinals stormed back and actually lead through several minutes of the fourth quarter. They had a chance to win it at the buzzer but a well-guarded 3-point attempt by Austin Durbin was no good, sending the game to overtime. The Cardinals had outscored Louisiana 24-13 in the final quarter to force an extra period.
