MOUNDS -- The Meridian Bobcats are sectional bound following a 68-61 win over South Egyptian Conference rival Egyptian to win their own 1A regional championship.

The Bobcats led 32-22 at the half, and came out with an 8-0 run to start third, pushing the lead to 18.

Egyptian closed within 54-41 by the end of the third, but could never really get within striking distance down the stretch.

Meridian advances to next week's Hardin County Sectional, where the Bobcats will face Goreville Tuesday night at 7:30.
