WEATHERFORD -- The North Crowley girls basketball team wrapped up the regular season Tuesday by storming back for a 46-40 win over Weatherford.
Due to Arlington Martin's win over Arlington Lamar, both North Crowley and Weatherford will make the Class 5A playoffs.
Weatherford (21-12, 8-6) will occupy the fourth seed out of District 3-5A and will face Southlake Carroll in the first round at 7 p.m. Monday at Nolan Catholic.
North Crowley (15-16, 10-4) and Martin (17-13, 10-4), which split a pair of games this season, will play a tiebreaker game at 6 p.m. Friday at Mansfield High to decide the second and third seeds out of 3-5A. The winner of the tiebreaker will face Keller in the first round, while the loser will play Richland.
After trailing 19-7 after one quarter, North Crowley held Weatherford to just four field goals and 21 total points the rest of the way.
