The Stuart Hornets advanced to the regional consolation semifinals, setting up a battle with fellow Pitt 8 member Crowder on Monday.

Stuart faced off against Strother for a spot in the regional tournament finals, with the Hornets using a second-half push to take a 50-28 win on Saturday.

After a defensive start for both teams, the Hornets went on a 12-5 run in the second quarter to take a 20-12 lead at the half.

In the third quarter, Strother started the second half with a scoring run of their own. But it wouldn’t be long before the Hornets struck back. They exploded on the offensive end, and found themselves leading 39-19 heading into the final quarter.

That push would prove to be the boost the Hornets needed as they carried that momentum to the win. They’ll next face off with fellow Pitt 8 Conference member Crowder on Monday at 8 p.m. in Tushka. The winner of that game will advance to the regional consolation final.
