Leader sports editor

Top-seeded Fayetteville ended Cabot’s season with a 74-46 victory in the 7A state semifinals on Saturday.

Fayetteville’s Callie Berna scored 28 points as Fayetteville (29-2) advanced to meet Fort Smith Northside in the state championship game in Hot Springs on Saturday.

Fayetteville took a 30-point lead over Cabot at one point in the fourth quarter, thanks in part to Berna going 10 for 10 with four three-pointers.

Melissa Wolff continued to lead Cabot (19-10) as she scored 15 points. She was the scoring leader with 18 points in the Lady Panthers’ 39-37 victory over Rogers in the second round.

Cabot, which had a first-round bye after finishing second in the 7A-Central Conference, also got 11 points from Elliot Taylor in the victory over Rogers.
