Pa. Class A District 5 Semis

Rockwood 60, Southern Fulton 59: At Everett, Rockwood's Tara Breegle hit a shot at the buzzer to deny the Indians a second straight trip to the district final and a spot in the state tournament.

Southern Fulton (21-5) trailed by two with 10 seconds to go, but Meghan White hit her fifth 3 of the night for a one-point lead with 6 seconds to play, setting up Breegle's heroics. The Indians led almost the whole way before the final minute.

"We had a chance to go up six with about a minute to go," Southern Fulton coach Mark Mellott said. "We got a basket, but they called a charge on Brooke Francis on the play. That was the ballgame right there."
