Carbon Hill fought Winfield to the buzzer in the area tournament championship game last week on the road.

Now the Bulldogs hit the road one more time with a spot in the Northwest Regional Tournament at Hanceville on the line.

Carbon Hill’s girls are among seven area teams that will play in sub-region basketball games this week.

Three girls teams — Carbon Hill, Curry and Addison — each hit the road for sub-region games on Monday.

Four boys teams — Jasper, Curry, Sumiton Christian and Meek — take to the court on Tuesday looking to continue their seasons.

Against Winfield, Carbon Hill rallied from a five-point deficit in the final 28 seconds, but the game-winning shot missed the mark at the buzzer.

Abby Martin had an all-around performance for Carbon Hill (18-12) with nine points, eight steals, seven assists and six rebounds.

The Bulldogs head to area tournament champion Holly Pond (14-13) for a 7 p.m. game on Monday. Carbon Hill is looking for a second straight trip to the Northwest Regional Tournament in Hanceville.

In Class 4A, Curry (17-12) makes the trip to No. 1 Priceville (23-5),

In Class 2A, Addison (17-11) plays at Hatton (22-7).

All boys sub-region games are set for Tuesday.

Jasper is the lone team hosting a sub-region game this week. The Vikings won the area tournament at Mortimer Jordan on Tuesday, ending the Blue Devils’ perfect record against area foes this season. The Vikings (11-17) host No. 2 Fairfield (21-9) in a Class 5A game on Tuesday.

In Class 4A, Curry (18-9) travels to Danville (13-14). In Class 2A, Sumiton Christian (21-7) makes the short trip to Cold Springs (19-10) and in Class 1A, Meek (22-9) plays at Pickens County (12-8).
