The Mansfield Tyger girls basketball team, the top seed at the Bucyrus Division I sectional saw their tournament season end on Saturday evening at the hands of upset mined Fremon Ross by a final score of 60-53, in the D-1 sectional final. 

The Tygers started well running out to a 16-8 first quarter lead with Immani Vickers and Dierra Bluster helping to lead the way as both would finish with 15 points.  But in the second quarter Fremont Ross cranked up their offense outscoring the Tygers 20-14 to pull to within two points at the half at 30-28., as sharp shooting Abbie Hasslebach, who would finish with a game high 27 points, kept her team in the game.

At the end of three quarters, Mansfield still held the advantage at 44-40, but the fourth quarter belonged to the Little Giants as they once again outscored Senior High 20-11.  The biggest difference in the game was Hasslebach nailing five three pointers pushing her team to a seven point win and the D-1 sectional title.  The win improves Fremont Ross to just 5-18 on the year and advanced them to the Division I district semifinal at Galion at 7pm Thursday where they will face Ashland as the Lady A's beat Marion Harding 49-33.  The loss ends the Tygers girls season at 12-12.
