The 41st Indiana Girls Sectional tournament opened last night around the WSLM listening area and dealt an end to one county team while sending another on to the semi-final round on Friday night.

The Salem Lady Lions opened play first on Tuesday night against the Silver Creek Lady Dragons.

The Lions (12-10) going into last night’s game against Mid-Southern Conference foe Silver Creek had high hopes. They had just fought the Dragons on their home court on January 9 and left with a one point victory, 38-37.

Last night, the Dragons held the Lions to 18 points through three quarters and hit important free throws in the fourth quarter. The difference, though, came on the boards.

Silver Creek out-rebounded the Lions 37-20 in the 43-32 victory. The Dragons had eight rebounds on the offensive end.

Silver Creek 7 12 14 10 43
Salem 7 6 5 14 32

As a result, Silver Creek (9-14) will face off with Corydon Central (10-12) in Friday’s first semifinal.

Cordyon won 68-64 in Sellersburg on Dec. 15, but Corydon enters the contest on a nine-game losing streak.

In the Borden sectional, the West Washington Lady Senators dominated the Medora Lady Hornets, 77-35.

West Washington 21 22 22 12 77
Medora 9 4 12 10 35

The Senators met up with Medora back on Dec. 5 and gave them a 95-29 shellacking.

The Senators (11-12) will face the Borden Braves (11-9) this Friday night.
