The Clear Fork Colts girls basketball team hung with Bellevue for most of the night in the girls Division II district semifinal at Buckeye Central on Thursday night before falling out of the tournament by a final of 55-49. The Colts trailed by just three points at the half 26-23, before being outscored by the Redmen in the third period 20-13. Bellevue's Carly Santoro led all scorers with 19 points. She and teammate Janelle Watson who finished with 12 points allowed the Redmen to go on a 10-0 second half spurt taking a 12 point lead at 42-30. But Clear Fork, who got 16 points from Erika Farst and 12 from Morgan Bailey were able to get within three at 52-49 late, but Bellevue hit three of four from the line to close the game out advancing to the final Saturday back at Buckeye Central. With the loss Clear Fork's season ends at 13-10, while the Redmen stand at 20-4. In the second game, Willard's Maggie King scored 17 points, but she was the only Flashes player to score in double digits, as Madison knocked 19-3 Willard out of the tournament with a 57-42 win. The Rams got 22 points from Molea Thompson and another 19 from Fantasia Hood as 13-11 Madison used a strong fourth quarter outscoring Willard 23-11, to advance to Saturday's final against Bellevue in New Washington at 7pm. The winner advances to regional semifinal play next Tuesday at Ontario at 7pm.
