Playing without one of its captains, the Wilmington High School girls basketball team couldn't overcome visiting Dracut in the opening round of the postseason.
Tri-captain Rachael Mara did not suit up for the game as she has battled illness for the last several weeks. Her absence was felt as the No. 4 Lady Wildcats were toppled in the first round of North Division 2 play by No. 13 Dracut, 60-48 on Tuesday night.
Carli Brent led the way with 14 points while her sister Christa Brent chipped in five points of her own in the twins' final game of a successful Wilmington career.
The sisters are two of six seniors who will graduate from this year's team, along with Mara, Kim Donoghue, Kaitlyn Cowden and Katie McKenna.
McKenna chipped in 11 points for Wilmington, which ended its campaign with a record of 16-5. Dracut advanced to face either Hamilton-Wenham or Stoneham in the quarterfinals.
