The #2 Luxemburg-Casco Spartan girls were upset by a determined #7 Green Bay Southwest team 61-57 in a Division II Regional Semi-final basketball game Friday night on 96.7FM WBDK.
Luxemburg-Casco (19-4) led early 12-4 before Southwest responded with eight straight points to tie the game. The first half was a hectic pace with turnovers and several lead changes before settling at a 26-26 tie at intermission. The Spartans took their last lead early in the second half with a three pointer by Jenna Jorgenson 29-28. The Trojans then scored inside with the strong play of Amanda Bouche and freshman sensation Jadden Simmons to pull out the victory.
The Spartans were led by Cassie Schiltz who scored 31 points while Jorgenson added 17. Southwest was powered by 23 points from Simmons and 16 points from Bouche.
Southwest (13-10) will now travel to #3 Seymour on Saturday night for the regional final championship.
The next Spartan basketball broadcast game that can be heard on WBDK 96.7FM will be next Friday as the #2 seeded Luxemburg-Casco boys will host the winner of Tuesday’s #10 Menasha- #7 Southwest game. Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 6:30 pm with the pregame show and tip-off at 7:00pm.
