(Springfield) The South Iron girls basketball team is back in Springfield for the second consecutive year and tonight they kick off the Class 1 Semifinals with a game against the Leeton Lady Bulldogs on J-98. The Bulldogs path to the Springfield was not an easy one as they played and beat #4 Otterville, #3 Community and #7 North Shelby in their last three games. Panthers head coach Lawrence Graves says they’re similar to a team South Iron just played.
While the Bulldogs have some big wins under their belt coming into the semifinals, the Panthers are no stranger to playing tough opponents in big games.
The South Iron Lady Panthers (21-4) play the Leeton Lady Bulldogs (22-4) tonight at 6 with pregame coverage starting at 5:45 on J-98 The Boot.
