GROVELAND - Lecanto and Groveland South Lake notched lopsided victories Tuesday night.
Second-seeded Lecanto (17-8) played most of the second half with a "mercy-rule" running clock, as the Panthers downed Springstead (0-19) 61-18. Tiffany Wright and Angie Acton each scored 11 to lead Lecanto.
Third seed South Lake (14-10) defeated Central (6-19) 65-31. Ectacy Evans led South Lake with 19 points. Jessica Osorio led Central with nine points.
Lecanto faces South Lake Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Top-seeded Leesburg matches up against Crystal River at 6 p.m.
Lecanto held Springstead scoreless in a 16-0 first quarter.
Springstead coach Greg Linley was ejected when the Eagles bench was assessed its third technical foul.
"There was pressure because we felt they could come back and beat you," Lecanto's Wright said. "It was fun."
"The first half, we were a little bit sloppy," Lecanto coach Ron Allan said. "Our second half, we showed a little bit more intensity. I wasn't real crazy about the way we shot free throws. Overall, we gave a good effort. Our younger kids moved up and did a good job. Overall, I thought the whole group played well."
The South Lake defense forced 25 Central turnovers, and Central could not stop the Eagles.
"They (South Lake) have had our number all year," Central coach Penny Gressick said. "They hit their 3s. We are not very tall. At the end, they were penetrating the gaps."
