OAKLAND — Kambrie Bosley and Raeslee Weimer hit big three-point goals in the fourth quarter and Hannah Horne sank two fouls shots in the final seconds to send top-seeded Southern to a 39-35 win over second-seeded Mountain Ridge in the Class 1A West Region, West Section championship game Wednesday night.
The victory puts coach Danny Bosley’s Rams one win away from a trip to the state tournament. Southern (21-2) will play North Carroll (14-10) on Saturday, at 5 p.m, at North Hagerstown for the region championship and berth in the state tournament.
North Carroll edged Boonsboro 38-36 to win the East section championship last night.
“It was a hard-fought game the whole way, a real battle, and just a great high school girls basketball game,’’ said Bosley. “We had a couple of seven-point leads, and they’d come right back and tie it.
“Mountain Ridge had a good game plan and was very well coached and prepared.”
Mountain Ridge finished 19-4, with three of the four losses coming to Southern.
Kambrie Bosley led Southern with 12 points on four three-point goals. Horne finished with eight points and Mandy Sweitzer had a huge night on the boards with 16 rebounds. Alicia Roth had eight rebounds.
Anna Broadwater scored a game-high 17 points for Mountain Ridge. Sarah Raines had eight.
The Miners led 8-7 after the first quarter and the Rams were up 14-13 at halftime. It was 24-24 going into the fourth quarter.
Southern surged ahead one final time, 31-24, by scoring the first seven points of the fourth quarter with Bosley and Weimer hitting three-point goals during the spurt.
Mountain Ridge fought back and got to within 37-35 when Horne swished two free throws with 12.1 seconds to go to seal it.
Bosley, Weimer threes get Rams by Miners, 39-35
