JACKSON — The Biggersville Lady Lions look like a team capable of winning a MHSAA Class 1A Championship Thursday afternoon.

And after Monday morning’s resounding 49-34 win over Lumberton in the Semifinal Round, they’ll get an opportunity to do just that.

The girls from Biggersville were simply bigger — they out-rebounded Lumberton 49 to 27 and played strong enough defense to hold the Lady Panthers to 23.6 percent shooting.

“We probably could have rebounded better, to be honest,” Biggersville coach Cliff Little said. “And I think some of our girls were beating themselves up a little bit (in the locker room), because they knew they didn’t play as well as they are capable of playing. I just had to remind them — ‘Hey, we’re playing for a state title. This is a good thing.’”

The Lady Lions (29-2) will face either West Union or McAdams in the 1A Championship at 1 p.m. Thursday.

If they can put together the kind of defensive effort they put in Monday morning, they could be in for a post-game celebration.
