The 20-3, Mansfield Tygers will take on 24-0 Norwalk Thursday evening at Galion in the Division I district semifinal with the winner moving on to the D-1 district final Saturday at BGSU at 8pm.  Last season the two teams met with the Truckers coming out on top 78-66. 

The Truckers earned their way in by bouncing Marion Harding in the sectional final last Friday 74-52.  Jake Fetherolf paced Norwalk with a game high 23 points.  The Tygers though had a much tougher time with Ashland slipping past the arrows 47-40.  Robert Jones led Mansfield with 16 points, which included two big three point shots and one block that started a fast break in the fourth quarter that resulted in a layup by Keon Johnson.

All players on both sides appear to be healthy with the exception of Mansfield's Donovyn Benson who did not play against Ashland and is still questionalbe against Norwalk due to a foot injury.  The winner meets either Whitehouse Anthony Wayne or Perrysburg in the D-1 district final at BG Saturday night.
