HARLAN -- It was a game that came down to the very last shot.
But the Logan-Magnolia Lady Panthers pulled off the win over the AHSTW Lady Vikings by a final of 36-35.
"I couldn't be more proud of our kids," said Lady Panther Head Coach Derek Sonderland. "They never gave up."
Throughout the game, both teams played great defense. And even when one team made a shot, the other seemed to have an answer pretty quickly on the other end.
AHSTW and Logan-Magnolia also each had their runs, but the game stayed close to the end.
As the game wound down, two free throws by Lo-Ma put them up 36-33. But AHSTW came down and shot a two-pointer to bring them back to within one.
The Lady Vikings would take a time out with about 21 seconds left to try and set up a play for the win.
However, Lo-Ma played tough defense and a deflection would cause a ball chase that would end with it going out of bounds with one-tenth of second left in the game.
The Lady Vikings tried to throw it in and tip the ball up and in but couldn't make that happen.
The Logan-Magnolia players exploded off the bench when the buzzer sound and the crowd was deafening as they cheered for their team who had just made it to State.
Senior Kylie Morrison and junior Emilie Thompson were the high scorers, each with 13 points.
For the second time in school history, Lo-Ma is headed to State. They are ranked #7 is Class 2A. And they take on second-seeded West Hancock, who has only lost once this season.
That game will take place Wednesday, March 4 at 10 a.m.
