ALEDO (February 25, 2015) — There will be no third straight trip to the regional tournament for Stephenville’s girls.

The Honeybees couldn’t survive a rematch with No. 10 Godley Wednesday night, falling 39-29 at Aledo High School. Godley moves on to face Bushland or Seminole in Friday’s 4A Region I semifinal at Texas Tech.

Godley dominated the fourth quarter after the game was tied 25-25 through three.

Makaila Tyer hit a driving layup to begin the fourth quarter scoring and give Godley the lead for good. It would get no closer.
