#11 Marion Harding 61, #22 Dublin Jerome 26

In the first tournament game ever hosted at Marion Harding, the Prexies came out guns blazing in a sectional semifinal win over Dublin Jerome. Jumping out to a 32-17 halftime lead, Marion Harding never looked back as the trio of Justice Steinman-Ross, Nicole Flock and Ariyah Douglas combined for 46 points.

Douglas was the difference maker in the game as her ability to push the ball and deliver accurate passes on the move allowed for Marion Harding to get its offense pumping. Douglas scored eight points in the first quarter and then helped her teammates get involved, as Steinman-Ross dominated on the post. Flock got hot in the second half, scoring 13 of her 15 points after halftime.

For Dublin Jerome, senior Amaris Lowery led all scorers with 11 points. The Celtics never really had a chance in this game, as Marion Harding scored first and never trailed.

Marion Harding advances to the sectional finals to take on No. 18 Dublin Scioto on Friday at 7 p.m. If the Prexies win on Friday, they'll more than likely face Dublin Coffman in the district semifinals, the third-straight Dublin squad that they'll face in the tournament.
