(Springfield) The South Iron girls basketball team had a lead late, but fell short in the end of their semifinal game 47-43 to the Leeton Lady Bulldogs on J-98. It was a slow start for both sides as the first points of the entire game didn’t come until the 2:12 mark of the first quarter. Leeton would take a one point advantage into the second quarter when the South Iron offense finally came to life.
The South Iron Lady Panthers fall to (21-5) and will play in the 3rd Place Game tomorrow morning at 10 on J-98 The Boot against the loser of Platte Valley and Walnut Grove. Leeton improves to (23-4) and will play their first ever girls basketball state title tomorrow afternoon.
