(ABC 6 NEWS) -- If you don't shoot well, it's hard to win at state, and both Byron and Hayfield found that out the hard way Wednesday.

Fifth-seeded Annandale beat the number four Bears 56-42 in a Class 2A quarterfinal, with Byron shooting just 29 percent as a team.

Third-seeded Hayfield didn't fare much better, going 3-of-20 from beyond the arc in a 60-54 loss to Esko in another 2A quarterfinal.

It was the Bears first trip to state in school history, while the Vikings were making their first appearance since 2001.
