OCALA - Lecanto's run of three trips to the regional playoffs ended Thursday against Dunnellon in the Class 4A-District 6 semifinals at Ocala West Port High.
The Tigers (11-9) shook off regular-season losses to the Panthers of 23 and 48 points and won 54-50 on Thursday. Dunnellon advances to a regional for the first time in 21 years.
"I knew what kind of team I had early in the season," Dunnellon coach Melissa Mosby said. "I didn't know that they would develop this quickly."
Lecanto (14-11) trailed 46-40 with 5:27 left but closed to within two on a 3-point play by Sasha Rodriguez with 19.3 seconds left.
After Dunnellon's Kim Alderman missed the front end of a one-and-one, the Panthers had a chance to tie, but they threw away the inbounds pass and the Tigers' Rainey Selgado nailed a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds remaining.
Angie Acton led Lecanto with 15 points, and Lexy Angelo added 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Michelle McDonald scored 25 and grabbed 18 rebounds for Dunnellon, while Alderman added 18.
In the nightcap, West Port won its 37th consecutive district game, beating Citrus 63-25. The Wolf Pack (20-6) outscored the Hurricanes (10-16) 41-8 over the final 12 minutes of the first half.
