Pembroke Dragons wins first sectional title upsetting Geneseo 43-38
Defense helped Pembroke get passed #1 seed Marion on Thursday and on Saturday, the Lady Dragons again held their opponent in check to clinch the team's first-ever sectional title.
Pembroke, which came in seeded fourth, beat #3 seed Geneseo 43-38 in Class C2.
There are three Class C brackets this year in Section V and only one Class C team will represent Section V against Section VI in the Far West Regional championship game, so tomorrow Pembroke plays Avon, Class C1 champions, to see who will play Oakfield-Alabama, Class C3 champions, for a chance to represent Class C going forward.
Game time tomorrow is 7 p.m. tomorrow at Cal-Mum.
On Saturday, Casey Wertz scored 10 points, Dekari Moss, nine, Emily Peters, nine, Serene Calderon, eight, and MacKenna Johnson, seven.
For Geneseo, Heidi Phelps scored 11 points and Kaniya Jackson scored 10.
