Lady Patriots Claim Regional Crown
HERRIN -- It was an all River to River-Ohio finale for the 3A regional championship at Herrin Thursday night.
Massac County held off the upset-minded host Tigers 41-30 to claim the title and advance to next week's Waterloo Sectional. Herrin took out top seeded Mt. Vernon to reach the title tilt.
The Lady Patriots grabbed a nine point lead midway through the third quarter, only to watch Herrin cut it to four early in the fourth behind senior Abby Horn. Horn led all scorers with 22.
Massac County held strong though, scoring seven straight to push the lead back to double figures. The Lady Patriots cruised from there for the 11-point win.
