Petersburg boys, Monacan girls win region semifinals

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Frank Mason has had Petersburg on his back for the last two seasons.  But with the region semifinals in the balance, his teammate Marcus Hoosier came up with the game-winning plays.

Petersburg beat reigning region champion L.C. Bird 71-67 Thursday night to take one of the region semifinals. The Wave will play the winner of the Friday's semifinal between Henrico and John Marshall.

The Skyhawks' Javonte Reddick hit a three with 1:15 remaining to give Bird a two point lead.  The Wave came down the court and Hoosier hit a three to give Petersburg the lead by one. Bird turned the ball over on the ensuing possession, and on the break Hoosier was fouled on a layup for a three-point play that put the game away.

Hoosier finished with 24 points and 11 rebounds, and Mason had 31 points and 13 rebounds.  Robert Johnson had 15 points and Kenny Williams had 13 points off the bench for the Skyhawks.  Bird falls to 23-4 on the season, Petersburg is 26-1.

In the girls semifinal Thursday at the Siegel Center, Monacan dominated Meadowbrook, and advanced to the final with a 59-44 beatdown of the Monarchs.  The Chiefs had a 23 points second quarter and led 34-20 at the break.  Micaela Parson poured in 20 points and added 12 rebounds, while Raven Williams had a double-double as well, with 15 points and 13 rebounds.  Brittany Nicholson led the Monarchs with 13 points.

Monacan will play the winner of Friday's showdown between Highland Springs and Cosby.
