North Mercer also was plagued with foul trouble as Sierra Michaelis (muh-Kay-lihs) and Courtney Owens both fouled out in the 4th quarter.
Michaelis led the lady Cardinals with 27 points.

The Meadville boys basketball team rallied late in their semi final basketball game last night; had the game tied, but in the end, Stanberry pulled out a 51 to 47 victory. Leading scorers for Meadville Eagles were Derek Smith with 18 and Cade Shifflett with 12. Stanberry had four score in double figures: Jacob Heddinger 11, Cole Gage, Nathan Luke, and Ryan Jenson each had 10 points.

Meadville with 29 wins and only two losses will play tonight for third place vs Drexel with a 6:40 start time. Drexel lost a nail biter type of game to Eminence 65 to 64.
