2012 IL Girls Semifinals: Springfield-Vernon Hills
2012 Girls Class 3A Basketball Semifinals
March 2, 2012
NORMAL – Vernon Hills not only made the trip to Normal but snagged a close victory over favorite Springfield 49-45.
The first half was just as close, 26-25, as senior guard Zahna Medley led the way for all players with 13, but was ice cold in the second half – going scoreless and the team shot a mere 25% from the field.
In the second half, Vernon Hills pressure played a big role in the struggling offense of the Senators as they held them to to just 7 points in the fourth quarter. The Cougars were led by Lauren Webb, who knocked down 13 points, followed closely by Sydney Smith who added 12. The team finished shooting (47.5%) a little below their season average but enough to advance.
Up next for Vernon Hills in the Class 3A Girls championship will be the winner of the Montini / Hillcrest contest up next.
