KING, N.C. -- Shelby fell one game short in its surprising run to the state title game in a 32-29 loss versus West Stokes in Class 2A high school football playoff action.
Shelby, which finished 6-5 in the regular season, traded leads with West Stokes throughout the game, but played most of the contest without quarterback Daylan Fuller, who left with a knee injury in the first half.
West Stokes, meanwhile, will play Kinston after they scored on the last play of the game to beat Reidsville 20-16. West Stokes lost to the Golden Lions 54-2 in the 2007 playoffs, but this year's squad will move to the championship game as an undefeated team looking for its first state title.
