Mo Gattuso didn't foul out this time, nor did Indian Rocks Christian bow out.

The Golden Eagles traveled to Lakeland Sonrise Christian on Thursday and pulled an upset, 65-54.

Gattuso fouled out last week in the district final against Cambridge, allowing the Lancers to pull away.

Against Sonrise she stayed in the game and poured in 25 points with three 3-pointers to lead all scorers. Sister Gabby Gattuso added 17.

With the win, IRC (22-8) travels to Bradenton Christian, the No. 4 team in Class A. The Panthers beat Fort Myers Evangelical Christian 72-41. The semifinal will be Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
