The Mansfeld Tygers edged the Norwalk Truckers 44-42 at Galion in the Division I district semifinal before a soldout house.  The game went back and fourth for four quarters with neither team having a lead any greater than five points.  The game was intense with neither team shooting the ball well as both shot only 35%.  Norwalk on 18-51, Senior High 16-46.  Norwalk led at the break 22-21 and after three 34-31.

Each team had a lead of five in the fourth quarter, each would answer.  The game came down to the final 20 seconds tied at 42 with Mansfield having the last shot.  The Tygers worked the clock to the final four seconds when Senior High's Donovyn Benson made his move to the basket from the left baseline, was fouled, hit both shots giving Mansfield a two point lead at 44-42 with 2.6 seconds remaining.  After a timeout, Norwalk tried to throw the ball the length of the floor, but the pass was too high hitting a support giving the ball back to Mansfield with 2.4 left.  Senior High inbounded the ball, Robert Jones was fouled with 1.1 remaining missed the foul shot, Jake Fetherolf for Norwalk grabbed the rebound as time ran out before his desperation shot.

The Tygers were led in scoring by Keon Johnson with 16 points, Chek Washington had 10, Robert Jones 7.  The Truckers were led by Jeff Thomas with 15, Ben Haraway 14, Jake Fetherolf 8.  With the loss Norwalk ends their season at 24-1, while Mansfield (21-3) moves on to the Division I district final at BGSU Saturday evening at 8pm against mad Anthony Wayne (19-4) who downed  Perrysburg at Liberty-Benton High School by a final of 58-54.
