GULFPORT - Seminole slipped past Dixie Hollins, 48-42, getting into the Class 5A, District 10 final and the playoffs. The Warhawks will face Boca Ciega, the other semifinal winner, on Saturday.

Dixie Hollins' Bryttany Gant scored with 3:39 left in the fourth to tie the score at 42. Seminole's Allison Fogle put the Warhawks (22-3) up with a basket 30 seconds later.

Dixie Hollins (10-19) failed to score in the final four minutes, finally falling after Jessmyn Sanfilippo hit an undefended lay-up with 38 seconds left in the game.

Much like the teams' last meeting, Dixie Hollins jumped out in front early and led 13-10 at the end of the first. But behind Fogle's eight first-half points, the Warhawks outscored Dixie Hollins 15-9 in the second quarter to grab a 25-22 lead.

Saturday will mark the fourth time this season the Warhawks and Pirates will play each other.

Boca Ciega's (17-9) win over St. Petersburg prevented a second upset by the Green Devils in the district tournament. St. Petersburg defeated Pinellas Park 42-41 on Wednesday.

With 3:33 left in the fourth quarter and the Green Devils ahead 39-33, St. Petersburg's Megan Fields fouled out. The sixth-seeded Devils (6-16) couldn't fill the void . In the final three minutes, the Pirates outscored St. Petersburg 12-0.

St. Petersburg's Kelly Westfield led all scorers with 18 points, including shooting hitting all six shots from the free-throw line.

5A-9: Largo, Clearwater take charge early

LARGO - A 22-3 run that staked host Largo to a 22-9 second-quarter lead proved too much for Palm Harbor University to overcome, as the Packers posted a 52-36 win.

The Hurricanes struck first, jumping out to a 6-0 lead. But the Packers' defense helped spark the run that turned the game around. Offensively, the hot outside shooting of Tashyra Feazell and Brittany Carannante aided the run.

Lauren McNary (12 points) tried to keep the Hurricanes in the game but it wasn't enough.

In the other semifinal, Clearwater dominated Dunedin 72-36. It was obvious from the opening tip that the Tornadoes had come to play, as they scored the first 17 points of the game.

Clearwater mixed a smothering defense with a balanced offense.

Karley Counts led the Tornadoes with 13 points.

Dunedin's Stephanie Barnes and Adriana Dallas each scored 11.

A-7: Keswick, Cambridge to meet for title

Host Keswick Christian advanced to the championship game with a 54-40 win over Bayshore Christian.

The Crusaders started strong, building a 10-point lead after the first quarter. Keswick shot poorly in the second quarter and the Warriors got within two points, but the Crusaders went on a 16-2 run to end the half.

Guard Kate Carl scored 13 on six field goals for Keswick. Sarah Hodupp added 11 points for the Crusaders.

Cambridge advanced to play Keswick, defeating Lakeside Christian 53-28.
