The Lady Cardinals drilled Newtown-Harris by a final score of 72-26, moving into a Thursday night semifinal with the Gilman City Ladyhawks. Gilman City earned a measure of revenge against Winston, beating the Lady Redbirds 53-33 on Tuesday night, just two weeks after Winston downed Gilman City in the Gallatin Tournament.

In boy's quarterfinal action on Tuesday night, the North Mercer boys walloped Pattonsburg by a final score of 66-16, as the Cardinals earned their first victory of the season (in game three). Sophomore guard Trey Wilson led the Cardinals with 20 points. Mercer plays Winston on Thursday night at 8:45 in the semifinals, after the Redbirds took apart Newtown-Harris, 62-31.
